As head coach of the Phoenix Suns, D’Antoni was most known for facilitating a fast pace offense. Earlier this year, he resigned as the head coach of the New York Knicks after a six-game losing streak. In the summer of 2012, D’Antoni also returned to Team USA as an assistant coach.
Wojnarowski also reports that due to a recent knee replacement surgery, D’Antoni isn’t quite on his feet yet.
