Knicks to interview Spurs assistant coach Will Hardy

Sport

The Knicks’ coaching search, while apparently focused on Tom Thibodeau, continues to expand.

Next up for consideration? Spurs assistant coach Will Hardy.

This is a notable amount of cooperation between San Antonio and New York. Last fall, Spurs president-coach Gregg Popovich sounded still upset with the Knicks for poaching Marcus Morris, who had agreed to sign with San Antonio last summer.

But that saga wasn’t Hardy’s fault. So, he gets a chance to impresses New York – though it’ll probably be difficult to leap Thibodeau.
