The Knicks' head coaching search will take them overseas.
New York is expected to travel to Europe to meet with former Cavaliers head coach David Blatt some time next week, per EPSN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Ian Begley.
Blatt became the head coach of the Cavaliers back in 2014, where he led Cleveland to the NBA Finals. However, his team would lose to the Spurs. He would coach the Cavs the next season as well, however, he was fired after 41 games.
Blatt returned to Europe to coach in the Euroleague, where he was before the Cavs hired him. This season, he coached Turkey's Darussafaka squad.
Knicks GM Scott Perry will make the best of the European trip, as he is expected to make it a scouting trip as well. Team president Steve Mills has always been a proponent for Blatt to become the Knicks' head coach back when Phil Jackson was president.
After returning from Europe, the Knicks will meet with another candidate in Spurs assistant James Borrego, who is considered one of the best at his position in the NBA. Perry knows Borrego from their time with the Magic, where Borrego was the interim head coach for 30 games.
Borrego has been part of head coaching searches in the past, as he considered for the Grizzlies' job before another Knicks candidate, David Fizdale, was named Memphis' new head coach back in 2016.
The Knicks have gone through a few interviews this week with Fizdale, Mark Jackson, Mike Woodson, Jerry Stackhouse, and most recently, Kenny Smith. New York's next interview will be with current Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer.
