Isiah Thomas will not go away. The New York Post reports that the Hall of Famer player and former Knicks coach/GM met with Knicks owner James Dolan for a business meeting on Friday.

Ready to cringe, Knicks fans? It sounds like Isiah wants back in with the organization.

The Post reports that the meeting between Dolan and Thomas took place two days after MSG’s president resigned. While Thomas may not be aiming for the vacant position, the former president reportedly was against the Knicks rehiring Isiah, so that could explain the timing of the meeting.

Thomas was fired by Florida International in April after three unsuccessful seasons as the basketball team’s head coach. He coached the Knicks to back-to-back dismal seasons from 2006-2008 when they went 56-108. That poor stint as a coach was preceded by three years as a Knicks exec in which the team had the second-worst record and highest payroll in the league, a truly rare feat. On top of all that, Thomas cost his company over $11 million because of a sexual harassment lawsuit.

Yet, despite all this, Thomas has had input with the franchise even when he was not an official team employee. Knicks fans better hope Dolan doesn’t bring Thomas back in any capacity.
