After being spurned by Steve Kerr, Knicks President Phil Jackson seemed to immediately turn his attention to Fisher, his former point guard who won five championships under him with the Lakers.

Fisher becomes the second player in two years to go immediately from active player to head coach, joining Jason Kidd who took the Brooklyn Nets head coach position immediately after retiring.

With a new head coach, Fisher’s staff is likely to include people with previous experience, and according to Beck, one name being thrown out is another former Laker who interviewed for the Lakers job:

With Fisher now set to go to New York, the Lakers and the Cleveland Cavaliers are the only teams remaining with head coaching voids.
