Jim Cleamons Rumors
New York Knickerbockers President Phil Jackson announced today additions to the coaching staff, including assistant coaches Jim Cleamons, Rasheed Hazzard and Brian Keefe and assistant coach, player development Joshua Longstaff. Per team policy, terms of the deals will not be disclosed.
While former Jackson assistants Kurt Rambis and Jim Cleamons are well-established candidates, the dark horse is Tyronn Lue, who has been an NBA assistant coach for five seasons, all under Doc Rivers. Rivers would need to grant the Knicks permission to speak with Lue, who was with Rivers in Boston and moved with him to the Clippers.
