Following the resignation of David Fitzdale, the New York Knicks are looking for a new coach. But because of the controversial owner, only few are interested in the clubs bench that has changed as many as ten coaches since the turn of the millennium, and only three in the last four years.
So there could be a precedent, so the New York Knicks would be the first NBA club to entrust this role to a woman.
Becky Hammon, one of the best basketball players of all time, working as Greg Popovich’s assistant in 2014 in San Antonio, is the most serious contender for the New York Knicks.
Some US media have already confirmed that Shamon is interested in the coaching position in New York, with Mark Jackson and Sam Mitchell as the main contenders.
