On Thursday, Thibodeau formally interviewed with the organization according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski and seems to be the favourite to land the job.

The Knicks are expected to be a very young and exciting team for he foreseeable future with plenty of cap flexibility to work with.

“Our team has young talent, significant future assets [including seven first-round picks over the next four years] and an ample amount of financial flexibility in the coming years,” President of Basketball Operations Leon Rose said. “Everyone — from ownership to athletes to staff and especially our fans — wants this team to be a winner. We will have all the resources necessary to create a great organization — one that supports our efforts to build a winning culture and gives Knicks fans, and the city of New York, the team you deserve.”

Also on the Knicks’ radar are a duo of former Brooklyn Nets coaches. Kenny Atkinson and Jason Kidd are two names that have been involved in the conversation.
