New York Knicks President Phil Jackson is set for talks with Derek Fisher this week about the vacant coaching role in New York.

Sources close to the situation have leaked the news on the same day it was confirmed that Jackson was to be fined $25,000 for tampering.

Jackson made statements during a press conference last week that indicated at hiring Fisher as the Knicks coach.

The NBA confirmed Monday that they would be fining the Knicks President for tampering with the Oklahoma City Thunder guard.

It is speculated that Jackson will wait until the end of the week however in order to give Fisher time to compose himself after the Thunder lost in game six of the Western Conference finals to the San Antonio Spurs.

Fisher, who is yet to confirm his retirement from professional basketball is also rumoured to be a coaching target for the LA Lakers who are coming off the back of a disappointing season.

The Knicks are shaping up as a team to watch this off-season as their search for a new coach continues and the future of star player Carmelo Anthony remains shrouded.
