Knicks coach Mike Woodson in an interesting situationPosted by Inside Hoops
Here’s the New York Daily News reporting on the latest with the Knicks, Phil Jackson and head coach Mike Woodson:
Mike Woodson continues to be asked about a Knicks future that isn’t likely to include him.
Phil Jackson is slated to be introduced Tuesday as the team’s new president of basketball operations, and he is expected to bring in a head coach of his choosing for next season regardless of how Woodson and the Knicks – who began play Saturday 3 1/2 games out of a playoff spot in the East — finish the season.
“When someone new comes in, he has his own thought process and philosophy in terms of how he feels and how the shape of the team should be,” Woodson said before Saturday’s game against the Bucks at the Garden. “Until he gets here, you just have no idea what he’s thinking and which direction he wants to go.”
The Knicks’ coach said earlier in the week that he hopes for a one-on-one meeting with Jackson to discuss his future. Woodson continues to be outwardly complimentary of the Hall of Famer, who won 11 NBA titles as coach of the Bulls and Lakers and two as a player with the Knicks in the 1970s.
“Anytime you can get a great basketball mind that comes into your organization, I mean, it can’t do nothing but help,” Woodson said.
