Mike D’Antoni Decision to Come by Friday

The Phoenix Suns expect to know by Friday whether coach Mike D’Antoni has found a new job, according to sources close to the process.

The expectation in NBA coaching circles remains that D’Antoni’s most likely destination is Chicago, provided that the financial obstacles facing the Bulls can be dodged.

Although D’Antoni and agent Warren LeGarie continue to hold talks with the New York Knicks — with the Knicks said to be genuinely interested and contemplating whether to make an offer — it has been known for days that Chicago is the job D’Antoni wants. [ESPN]
