Former Golden State Warriors coach and current NBA analyst Mark Jackson will reportedly interview for the Knicks' head coaching vacancy on Wednesday, according to ESPN's Chris Haynes.
Jackson, who spent seven seasons as a Knicks point guard and played 17 years in the NBA, is among several candidates New York is bringing in for interviews as Jeff Hornacek's replacement.
The Knicks are reportedly considering former Memphis Grizzlies coach David Fizdale, G League head coach Jerry Stackhouse, former Cleveland Cavaliers coach David Blatt and Los Angeles Clippers assistant coach Mike Woodson for the position.
Jackson, 53, currently an ESPN basketball analyst alongside Jeff Van Gundy (in whom the Knicks reportedly are not interested), went 121-109 as the Warriors coach before Steve Kerr replaced him for the 2014-15 season.
Jackson went 121-109 in three seasons leading the Warriors, but never led Golden State past the conference semifinals. He played for the Knicks from 1987 to 1992 and then returned to New York from 2000 to 2002. As a Knick, he averaged 11.1 points per game.
