NBA analyst Steve Kerr has been on the Knicks radar for a while. When Mike D’Antoni stepped down as Lakers head coach, rumors started that they were considering Kerr to take the reigns. Marc Berman of the New York Post squashed those rumors.
Steve Kerr, the overwhelming favorite to be the next Knicks coach, is not on the Lakers’ candidate list, according to an NBA source.
The Lakers believe Kerr is too far along in the process of joining Phil Jackson’s Knicks.
