Report: Knicks Want Steve Kerr Hired Next Month


The New York Knicks are trying to complete a deal with TNT’s Steve Kerr that would make him the new head coach as soon as the playoffs end, according to Marc Stein of ESPN New York.

Knicks president Phil Jackson would like him hired by early May, making Kerr his first coaching hire.

It remains to be seen whether or not Kerr is going to jump so quickly but Stein says that Jackson has made significant progress in convincing him that the time is right.
