Interview with Warriors’ Brown last for Knicks

Former Cavaliers coach Mike Brown was the last interview by the Knicks to become their new head coach, according to a report.

Golden State Warriors assistant and former Cleveland Cavaliers and Los Angeles Lakers coach Mike Brown has interviewed for the New York Knicks opening, and the Knicks hope to make a decision by week’s end.

That’s the latest from ESPN, which reported the talk with Brown wrapped up the Knicks’ interview process.

As noted by Hoops Rumors, 11 names have been linked to the Knicks’ coaching search. They are:

Former Cavs coach David Blatt; San Antonio Spurs assistant James Borrego; former Atlanta Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer; former Memphis Grizzlies coach David Fizdale; Miami Heat assistant Juwan Howard; former Warriors coach and current ESPN analyst Mark Jackson; Celtics assistant Jay Larranaga; TNT analyst Kenny Smith; G League coach Jerry Stackhouse; and Los Angeles Clippers assistant and former Knicks coach Mike Woodson.

Blatt is among those who reportedly interviewed twice, and along with Budenholzer and Fizdale, is considered among the frontrunners.

Brown, 48, has coached eight NBA seasons and has compiled a record of 347-216. Both Brown (2007) and Blatt (2015) led the Cavs to the Finals, though neither trip resulted in a title.

The Knicks fired former coach Jeff Hornacek immediately after the final game of the regular season.
