Scott Brooks Thinks the Knicks Should Pursue Derek Fisher

Scott Brooks Thinks the Knicks Should Pursue Derek Fisher

Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- With the New York Knicks still searching for a new head coach after Steve Kerr turned them down, Oklahoma City Thunder head coach Scott Brooks thinks that point guard Derek Fisher would be a great fit for the team once the playoffs end.

Fisher's name has come up among reported coaching targets for the team. He's still an active player, but is rumored to be retiring following this season.

Brooks thinks that Fisher's knowledge of the game and his realtionship with Phil Jackson would serve him well in New York.

"Derek will make a great head coach," Brooks told the New York Daily News on Saturday. "He's smart, he knows the game and he works hard. He's also played for one of the greatest coaches in sports history . . . and now I'm not talking about myself by the way."

The 39-year-old Fisher is in his 18th NBA season. Going from player to coach right away isn't unheard of, as Jason Kidd played for the New York Knicks last season and became the head coach of the Brooklyn Nets during the offseason.

Steve Kerr Hired by Warriors

Steve Kerr Hired by Warriors

Jed Jacobson/Getty Images(NEW YORK) --  The Golden State Warriors have hired Steve Kerr to be their next head coach. 

After turning down a chance to coach the New York Knicks, Kerr agreed to a five-year, $25 million deal to replace the fired Mark Jackson in Golden State.

"They have a good young team. The location is ideal," Kerr said on Wednesday night. "My daughter goes to Cal and plays volleyball. My oldest son is in college in San Diego and our youngest is a junior in high school. It's just a short flight for them."

Kerr was believed to be in talks with the Knicks ever since Phil Jackson was brought to New York to serve as their team president. He won three NBA titles playing for Jackson in Chicago. However, after talking it over with his family, Kerr decided to stay in his home state of California.

"I told Phil, 'I think I have to pursue this other opportunity,' " Kerr said. "He gave me his blessing. He said go look at it, and do what was in my heart."

Kerr spent three seasons as general manager of the Phoenix Suns before stepping down in 2010.  He has never been a head coach.

The Warriors went 51-31 this past season and were eliminated by the Los Angeles Clippers in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs.
