NBA Rumors: Knicks To Hire Kurt Rambis As Assistant To Derek Fisher?

With Derek Fisher now in the fold in New York, a few other former Los Angeles Lakers might join his coaching staff. Fisher will need the help of experienced coaches or at least members of teams that have run the triangle offense in the past under Phil Jackson.

There’s been no word on whether Fisher will try implement the triangle in New York, but it seems like a safe bet at this point with the names being mentioned as possible assistants for his staff.

One of many names being mentioned as possible candidates for Fisher’s coaching staff is Kurt Rambis, according to Bleacher Report’s Howard Beck:

As mentioned in Beck’s tweet, other former Lakers could also be joining Fisher and possibly Rambis in New York. Luke Walton has been in discussions with Jackson ever since Steve Kerr was rumored for the Knicks’ vacancy last month and may jump at the opportunity to get some experience under his belt in New York.

Former Laker Rick Fox might also be an intriguing option for Fisher and Jackson. Fox won three titles playing alongside Fisher and under Jackson in Los Angeles. The three-time NBA champion recently claimed to be a candidate for the head coaching vacancy in New York before Fisher ultimately took the job.

Bill Cartwright is also a former player under Jackson from the Chicago Bulls days. Cartwright’s name has been mentioned as a candidate for numerous head coaching positions over the years, but he hasn’t been a head coach in the NBA since being fired by the Bulls back in 2003.

With Fisher set to be officially named the new head coach of the Knicks on Tuesday, it is still very early in the process and more names are likely to be mentioned as potential candidates for his coaching staff moving forward.
