Knicks have reportedly chosen their new assistant coaches – NBA Blog

The Knicks have reportedly decided on their assistant coaching staff. Here’s the New York Post reporting:

Tom Thibodeau will have at least two guys on his assistant staff with whom he’s worked closely.

While the hirings of Kenny Payne, Johnnie Bryant and Mike Woodson had been cemented, Thibodeau will also add his longtime trusted lieutenants, Andy Greer and Dice Yoshimoto, sources confirm.

The Post first reported Greer and Yoshimoto as candidates back on May 31. Greer, who was with Thibodeau on the Knicks’ staff from 2001-03, and Yoshimoto, were alongside Thibodeau at his head-coaching stops in Chicago and Minnesota.

The Knicks haven’t announced the hirings as official yet, but they’ve been reported by multiple media outlets.

Coaching staff aside, the biggest questions, by far, regarding the Knicks revolve around which roster moves the team will make this offseason.
