Mike Tannenbaum, who is Steve Kerr’s agent and former New York Jets general manager is asking for a five-year, $30 million contract for his client.
They’re already paying Phil Jackson $60 million as the team’s president and he had never worked in a front office before. It would seem a no-brainer for the Knicks to give $30 million with that being said but…
Knicks have been slow to overpay Steve Kerr in deal length or salary, sources say. Tried treating him closer to 1st-time coach than a star.

Either way, it doesn’t look like they’re gonna let Kerr slip by to the Jazz or Warriors. He’ll get his job, but for how much is the question.
