Howard Eisley RumorsAll NBA Players
Barring an unforeseen change, Westchester Knicks G League coach Mike Miller will join David Fizdale’s staff next season, per SNY sources. Miller was named G League coach of the year in 2017-18. Assistant Howard Eisley left the Knicks recently to join Juwan Howard’s staff at Michigan, creating an opening on staff.
Miller joins a staff that includes Keith Smart, Kaleb Canales, Jud Buechler, Pat Sullivan and Royal Ivey. New York prides itself on the player development acumen on the coaching staff. Ivey was a key player development coach in Oklahoma City and remains so in New York. According to SNY sources, several teams with assistant coaching vacancies have expressed interest in Ivey. It is unknown if Ivey interviewed with any teams. New York would need to grant permission for teams to interview Ivey.
Knicks head video coordinator and player development coach Ross McMains is no longer with the team, according to league sources. That makes two openings on David Fizdale’s staff after assistant coach Howard Eisley joined Juwan Howard at Michigan. Expect Westchester head coach Mike Miller to be a candidate for a position with the Knicks. Miller was the 2017-18 G League coach of the year.
