Tom Thibodeau is said to be the Knicks’ favorite to be the next HC
Tom Thibodeau is said to be a “heavy favorite” for the coaching job of New York Knickswho started making exploratory calls to fill in a staff.
Stefan Bondy from the New York Daily News reported that the job is “Thibodeau is to be lost”. The team is expected to consider Mike Miller and Kenny Atkinson, and there is still a chance that John Calipari will leave Kentucky for New York, but Thibodeau is up for his third NBA coaching job.
Thibodeau had previously coached the Chicago Bulls since 2010-15 and the Minnesota Timberwolves since 2016-19 and set a record of 352-246. He is still under contract with the Timberwolves for the 2020-21 season, which, according to Thibodeau, gives him some leeway in deciding his future.
