There are some notable names the Knicks could hire, like Spurs assistant Becky Hammon. Hammon would become the first women’s head coach in NBA history and has served under Greg Popovich for the past 5+ years. Will the Knicks be the franchise to give Hammon an opportunity?
Former Knick great, Patrick Ewing is the head coach at his alma mater Georgetown. Could Ewing be ready for a return to Madison Square Garden as the Knicks next head coach?
