Kerr is part of the conversation, and the two sides are deep into discussions, a person familiar with the situation told USA TODAY Sports. The person requested anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly about the Knicks' situation. He's at the top of the list. It's becoming clear Jackson likes the idea of getting the band back together, even if the band's greatest hits were years ago. Jackson likes what's familiar, and he's going to go with whom he trusts. That's why Jackson's connections to his great Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers teams are expected to permeate the Knicks. USA Today Sports

Last time Mike Woodson got dismissed as head coach, by Atlanta, he was unable to immediately land another head job. He instead joined the Knicks as Mike D’Antoni’s defensive assistant for the 2012 lockout season, getting promoted to the head job when D’Antoni resigned with 24 games left in the season. While Woodson could take next season off as he’s due $3.4 million on the final year of his contract, he may investigate current vacancies, specifically the one in Detroit. New York Post
