Updated Rankings for NY Knicks Coaching Candidates

It's a search that many thought would be over weeks ago, but Phil Jackson is still scouring his inner circle and beyond to find the next New York Knicks head coach. 

After Steve Kerr turned down the opportunity to grow under his mentor in favor of coaching closer to home, New York was forced back to the drawing board. And though not as handcuffed as before, Jackson is still majorly relying on his top candidate, Derek Fisher, to jump straight to the coaching ranks with New York next year. 

If Phil is spurned twice by his two top choices, he'll have options but may need to get creative. Of course, after he enjoyed so much success in a system that no other coach has mastered to date, his candidates must fit specific criteria. But if he doesn't see a true fit with any triangle disciples, Jackson will need to look farther and wider than he'd ever imagined. 

Ahead, we rank New York's rumored candidates to fill the team's void on the bench, in order of likelihood.
