Many names have been linked to the Knicks’ job. One coach was considered a hot candidate but has interest elsewhere, while an external push for another former coach doesn’t seem like it’s going anywhere. Fizdale is one of the more respected names on the market despite how his tenure in Memphis went, and he’s clearly impressed the Knicks’ braintrust.
