Knicks Derek Fisher is the next option for Knicks?

And the plot thickens!

Quote:
Oklahoma City guard Derek Fisher, who played under Phil Jackson with the Los Angeles Lakers, is emerging as a leading candidate to join Jackson in New York now that Jackson's first choice, Steve Kerr, has signed with the Golden State Warriors. Fisher, of course, has zero head coaching experience but Jackson believes that Fisher has the intelligence and worth ethic to become a successful if he were to make the move from player to coach. Most recently, Jason Kidd went right from playing to being hired as head coach of the Brooklyn Nets.
Quote:
Jackson's plan, according to a source, would be to assemble an experienced staff around Fisher which could potentially include Kurt Rambis and Bill Cartwright, two former NBA head coaches. Jackson thinks highly of Rambis, the long-time Lakers assistant, and there is a possibility that Rambis could be hired as a head coach.

It's funny how things in Basketball have changed...

More so then ever, teams are looking for a "name" in the search for coaches instead of experience.

It's like signing a free agent star.

Derek Fisher is a "name"?

IMO the bigger names are coaches known for winning. Knicks are still going to be a disaster with Phil Jackson running things.

If the Knicks offer him a contract say 3yr 15mil or more I guarantee Fisher will retire. He has plenty of championships and has nothing left to prove. Fisher is only making the vet min - 1.4mil, so if he gets offered anything more than that to coach, he will retire for sure.

It depends on what type of coach the Knicks need.

If Melo stays and they try and rebuild a contender, they'll want a veteran coach that can get the guys firing on all cylinders. Install a creative offense and a sturdy defense.

If Melo leaves, the Knicks will be stuck with Stoudamire, Chandler, and a handful of scrubs. This would be a great opportunity for a rookie head coach such as Derek Fisher.

Why are there so many (relatively) head coach signings for people with no coaching experience?

It's a good question, but sadly I don't think anyone knows the answer. I could understand if teams were signing 1st yr coaches to 2-3 yr deals at about 2mil per year. There really doesn't seem to be a true reason as to why teams are taking this route.
