Oklahoma City Thunder player doesn't want Knicks job

Published Add your comment

It seems that Derek Fisher might not want the New York Knicks job after all, with reports suggesting that media speculation linking him with the position may have been premature to say the least.

USA Today Sports has today speculated that Fisher might not even want the job at all. It remains to be seen if he even wants to become a head coach in the first place. He still playing and contributing to a team that remains alive in the playoffs, and Fisher may still have hopes for his playing future yet.
It's understood that Fisher may want to become a front-office executive after retiring, rather than become a head coach in the NBA.

The timing right now is also not the best for Fisher, who is caught up in a huge playoff Western Conference Finals series against the San Antonio Spurs, which starts Monday night.

The Knicks may want to fill the position before Fisher is out of the playoffs, giving a new coach more time to build for next season.

It's not always a case of what the great Phil Jackson wants, the great Phil Jackson gets. And in this case, the Knicks and Jackson will have to patient if they really want their man.
