The Knicks had previously interviewed a bunch of different candidates for the job, including Mark Jackson and TNT's Kenny Smith, but ultimately, the former Memphis Grizzlies head coach impressed the Knicks front office the most. "He was one of the first non-American born assistant coaches at both the NCAA and NBA levels and his most recent head coaching stint includes leading the Slovenian national team to the 2017 EuroBasket title, which was the first European title in the history of the country".
Despite his success - the made the playoffs in his only full season - he was largely forced out due to repeated clashes he had with Memphis star big man Marc Gasol. They will hire David Fizdale.
Fizdale was an assistant coach in Miami under Erik Spoelstra when James played for the Heat.

Even though Wallace and the Grizzlies' front office attempted to portray the Fizdale firing as the organization heading in a different direction, it was no secret that his tumultuous relationship with center Marc Gasol was beyond fix.
The Knicks will hope he will have the same effect on their young team, which has missed the playoffs the past five seasons and could struggle again next season while All-Star Kristaps Porzingis recovers from a torn knee ligament. He went 60-104 in two seasons at the helm.
Last season, the Knicks went 29-53 and finished 11th in the East. Team president Steve Mills and general manager Scott Perry said at the time they wanted someone who could better communicate with today's National Basketball Association players and said they were searching for someone who would mold the team over the next three to five years. "But I'm not going to let them treat us that way". Following the Grizzlies' 7-12 start in the 2017-18 campaign, Fizdale was sacked by the organization.
