We all thought that the choice of the next Knicks head coach would fall on Tom Thibodeau or Kenny Atkinson. Instead we were having a good time. The Knicks still surprise us.
The New York team plans to interview other coaches as well, as confirmed by Shams Charania of The Athletic:
ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski also confirms this:
Orlando Magic assistant Pat Delany will interview for the New York Knicks head coaching job, sources tell ESPN. Delany has been an assistant under Steve Clifford for five years after advancing within the Miami Heat organization. He spent a year as a G-League head coach with Heat.

SNY’s Ian Begley confirms what his colleagues have said:
The Knicks plan to speak to at least 8-10 coaches during a head coaching quest that is likely to extend to next month, SNY reported. The search should end before the start of the regular season games in Orlando as part of the restart of the 2019-2020 season. SNY has learned that Chicago assistant Chris Fleming should be among the coaches interviewed from New York.
History has it that New York will hire a coach by July 30th.
