There’s a new coaching vacancy in the NBA after the New York Knicks fired Derek Fisher today. Phil Jackson made the decision to fire Fisher, who he hand-picked, amidst a four-game losing streak and nine losses in the franchise’s last ten games. Kurt Rambis will handle the head coaching duties in the interim.
ESPN is reporting two of Jackson’s former players, Luke Walton and Brian Shaw, are in the running to replace Fisher full-time. But don’t think for one second John Calipari’s name won’t get throw into the mix by someone, as it always does.
Here we go again!
