Phil Jackson is reportedly going to accept a front office job with the New York Knicks. Obviously, that would change everything for one of the NBA's most popular franchises. However, the team isn't going anywhere without a new head coach. Here are the top five candidates to replace Mike Woodson next season:
Scott would only be an option if all the other Knicks candidates didn't pan out. However, that's a reality that fans have to face. There are no guarantees the franchise will land an A-caliber coach. Scott is not a bad plan C.
Would the Knicks love to have George Karl? You bet. Would he want to go to the Big Apple and coach this team? I doubt it. But if the Knicks are serious about winning, they'll reach out to Karl.
Thibodeau has been linked to this job for awhile now. I get it, the Knicks should want him. But in my opinion, there's almost zero chance he'll leave Chicago.
Kerr is definitely the wild card of the candidates. He's never been a head coach before, but it's said that he would be a prime candidate if indeed Phil Jackson joins the front office. Could a rookie head coach change the culture of the Knicks? With the help of the Zen Master, maybe.
Is Jackson really content with Golden State? Would he pass up a chance to coach the Knicks? It's hard to believe that the native New Yorker and former Knick would. For him, it's basically a dream job. However, turning this roster of players around, could become a nightmare.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have played (much) better with LeBron James on the bench through the first half of Game 3. The Cavs would be wise to keep him there. Read More
