How Close is Mark Jackson to Knicks Coaching Gig?

Jackson said during yesterday’s broadcast, "Donnie Walsh is a guy I’ve had a great relationship with and a lot of history with. This is a job that’s very intriguing."

In a statement released earlier in the day, Jackson said, "The New York Knicks are one of the most storied franchises in all of sports, and I am honored Donnie Walsh mentioned my name as a candidate. Coaching has always intrigued me."

The Post first reported Jackson had emerged as the top candidate. [NY Post]
