Triangle or not, the Knicks thinks Mark Jackson can coach.
The New York Post reports that the Knicks plan to interview fired Warriors coach Mark Jackson for their coaching vacancy in the wake of Steve Kerr's decision to take the Warriors job instead of heading to New York.
This in spite of the fact that Jackson doesn't specialize in Jackson's hallowed "Triangle" offense he learned from Tex Winter.
According to the source, that means Mark Jackson is on Jackson's tentative list that once included just one name.
According to a source, Jackson was to meet with Knicks general manager Steve Mills on Thursday night at Chicago's pre-draft combine to go over some candidates.
