Scott Skiles Verbally Commits to Milwaukee Bucks

Scott Skiles verbally has accepted an offer from the Bucks, erasing him as a Knicks coaching candidate, according to a league source.

Skiles’ imminent hiring strengthens front-runner Mark Jackson’s candidacy, which received another boost over the weekend with Jeff Van Gundy’s endorsement.

The Skiles camp was disappointed Donnie Walsh did not contact them this weekend. Skiles played for Walsh in Indiana. [NY Post]
