Dunleavy, who has a 613-716 record in 17 seasons as coach of the Lakers, Bucks, Trail Blazers and Clippers, appeared on ESPN Radio's "The Herd with Colin Cowherd" Thursday and was asked if he thinks he has a shot at the Knicks' job. "I hope so," he said. "I played in the triangle system down in Houston. It was kind of left over from when Tex Winter coached there. All my teams, I've run it as a transition set. The part of that was also the fact that I was thinking at some point in the playoffs, we'll run into Phil's teams, and by the time we get there, my guys will run the triangle very well and be prepared to play them. "Maybe I'm the outside guy from the other guys that he'll talk to, former players who played in the system and other guys who coached under him in the system. But at least I do know the system. I have run it." Newsday

Consider former Lakers and Clippers coach Mike Dunleavy Sr. as one of those possibilities. “If I had an opportunity to interview with them I would definitely be interested,” said Dunleavy on his SiriusXM NBA Radio show on Thursday. “I had a great run there when I coached in the ’90s.” Los Angeles Daily News

“It’s one of the premier jobs, if not the premier job in the league,” said Dunleavy. “They’ve got Kobe Bryant still on their team and he’ll be back next year healthy and I think he can play at a very high level. They’ve got cap space to use this summer to work on the team.” Los Angeles Daily News

Dunleavy revealed he had also interviewed with the Lakers when they looked to replace Mike Brown following a 1-4 start in the 2012-13 season. The Lakers also talked to Phil Jackson and Mike D’Antoni, who was chosen before resigning on Wednesday amid two frustrating seasons filled with injuries and mixed support surrounding his fast-paced, perimeter-oriented system.

Taj Gibson watched the last 7:51 of the season from the training room after rolling his left ankle. He didn’t like what he saw: The Wizards grabbed five offensive rebounds in the final 1:57 of the Game 5 75-69 loss Tuesday night at United Center. “Just frustrating,” he said. Up three, the Wizards held the ball for 1:18, buoyed by three Marcin Gortat offensive rebounds. With 16.2 seconds left and still up three, Andre Miller missed both free-throw attempts, but Nene got the rebound. When Bradley Beal missed his second free throw, Nene got another rebound. “It symbolized the way the series went,” swingman Mike Dunleavy said. “We just could not secure an offensive rebound.
