[new_royalslider id=”289″]

While all the focus was on the Carmelo Anthony meeting for the Los Angeles Lakers, one of their potential head coaching candidates has decided to head elsewhere. According to ESPN New York’s Ian Begley, Kurt Rambis will be joining Derek Fisher’s coaching staff as an assistant:

Kurt Rambis will accept a position as an assistant coach under new Knicks head coach Derek Fisher, league sources told ESPN New York.

Rambis will be the first addition to Fisher’s staff. Fisher said at his introductory news conference that he hoped to add some experienced coaches to his bench.

Since Mike D’Antoni’s resignation, the Lakers interviewed numerous potential candidates and Rambis was considered one of the favorites for the position. However, the team has taken its time and it appears Byron Scott is now the front runner for the head coaching position after two interviews.

For Phil Jackson and the Knicks, they get an assistant coach who has years of experience with the triangle offense and should help Fisher in his first season. With both franchises are hoping to land Carmelo Anthony this summer, it will be interesting to see what rosters they have on opening day.
