Possible Return of Thomas to New York Knicks
After Isaiah Thomas was fired as head coach and president of the New York Knicks it was assumed he would never return, however, it appears that this might change.
It is known that there is an opening for a president and assistant coach at the Knicks and the owner, James Dolan, recently had a meeting with Thomas.
Furthermore, Thomas played at Indiana with current head coach Mike Woodson.
At present Thomas is remembered for wasting the team’s money after the 2005-06 season when the Knicks had the highest payroll in the NBA but produced the league’s second worst record.
A New York Daily News report said that a private source close to Dolan insisted that Thomas’ return is inevitable.
However, the source also insisted that this will not happen before the start of the next season as Thomas is unsure about accepting the position.
The source said that Thomas “is very close with Jim Dolan but he’s told me that he’s not ready to jump back into the NBA just yet.
There’s this perception out there that Isaiah is desperate to get back, but that’s false.”
Thomas nearly returned to the Knicks as a consultant two years ago but the NBA commissioner David Stern vetoes the move.
