Porzingis says he's staying out of Knicks' coaching search

Porzingis says he's staying out of Knicks' coaching search

The New York Knicks have an opportunity to reward him for his loyalty through a trying season.

After 18 months in charge at the Memphis Grizzlies, his first job as a head coach in the NBA, Fizdale was sacked in November after a 7-12 start to the 2017-18 season. "I hope they call me".

Before meeting with Mills and Perry on Saturday, Porzingis, 22, reiterated that he wants to remain in NY long term. I want it to be mutual.

With Porzingis, Ntilikina, and Tim Hardaway Jr., this Knicks team definitely has some promise, but if they want to break their five-year playoff drought, changes will have to be made.

"I think in NY, it's better to have done this before, " Woodson said.

Now that Phil Jackson is well out of the way, and Mills has more of a voice in process of hiring the next coach alongside general manager Scott Perry, maybe the second time will be the charm with Blatt. "I love this place", he said.

However, they struggled through a disappointing 2013-14 campaign and Woodson was offered as a scapegoat. "I got a chance to play for the Knicks, so it was cool, but it was towards the end of my career", he revelaed to Basketball Insiders back in 2016.

Beyond KP's injury, the Knicks made some head-scratching moves, bringing in point guards Trey Burke and Emmanuel Mudiay despite rookie point guard Frank Ntilikina's clear need for development.

Woodson, 60, was sacked by then-Knicks president Phil Jackson following the 2013-14 season - without a meeting - after the team missed the playoffs by one game.

"I would be insane not to, " said Woodson, who served six seasons in Atlanta.
