Forget the fact that Ewing is the greatest Knick of all-time (statistically speaking), the work that he has done with Yao and Dwight Howard has been outstanding. Now, should the Knicks land themselves a big man, Ewing would be the ideal candidate. Or maybe he could do something with Cheikh Samb?
But Ewing is looking for a head coaching job, and wouldn't seem to be interested in being an assistant for several more years, which is exactly how long the Knicks would want him to be here.
So with that in mind, it's a long shot at best that Ewing would make a return here and that's not even mentioning if #33 is still sour at the organization with how they treated his son this season.
It's a long shot that the Knicks draft a big man project as well as they could use some help in several areas right away and lumbering big men don't fit in Mike D'Antoni's system.
