If the latest reports are to be believed, Jason Kidd will more than likely not be the next coach of the New York Knicks. That is despite having a ‘great interview’ with the team.
It all comes down to, apparently, their preference to go with Tom Thibodeau instead. Kidd has had great interviews in the past, such as when the Nets took a gamble on him, but he’s not had much success as a head coach as of yet, so that could explain why Thibodeau is the favored man at the moment. Plus, Thibodeau has a long-lasting relationship with Knicks pres Leon Rose and was an assistant there for a decade. All advantages that Kidd just doesn’t have.
