In the wake of the Knicks firing head coach Jeff Hornacek, names of more than a half dozen candidates have emerged, with former coach Jeff Van Gundy among them.
ESPN's Ian Begley told SNY that Van Gundy will be an "interesting" name to watch, and Frank Isola of the NY Daily News told SNY he believes Van Gundy "still has an attachment to The Garden and to the Knicks."
Begley noted that he wouldn't put Doc Rivers high on the list, and that David Fizdale "checks off a lot of boxes."
Regarding Jay Wright, Isola said he believes he would stay at Villanova, but added that "Phil Jackson came. Larry Brown came. Maybe Jay Wright will come."
