PLAYERS: James Dolan
TEAMS: New York Knicks
Former New York Knicks coach and president Isiah Thomas has been offered a position with the team, but is reluctant to return. A report in the New York Daily News on Sunday cited sources close to Thomas that he has had discussions with Knicks owner James Dolan to return to the team in a management capacity. Thomas was fired as the Knicks' coach following the 2007-08 season. He also served as the franchise's president from December 2003 to April 2008. Until last spring, he served as head coach of Florida International University's men's basketball team for three seasons. "Isiah is very close with Jim Dolan but he's told me that he's not ready to jump back into the NBA just yet," source said. "There's this perception out there that Isiah is desperate to get back, but that's false. I think it will eventually happen but just not now."
