The National Basketball Association’s (NBA) New York Knicks are in a time of change. The club is going to attract several development coaches, who will be the assistants of the new head coach Tom Tibodo.
Knicks plans to hire several development coaches, according to information available in the media SNY. The Knicks are currently one of the youngest teams in the league, and the club has seven first-round selections in the next four NBA drafts.
Media SNY points out that this is a logical decision, because the main priority of the Knicks will be the development of new players.
Until recently, the New York team had one of the greatest talents in the club’s history – Kristaps Porziņģis, who was replaced because the previous management did not have a clear vision to start with the line-up and basically wasted the opportunity to further develop Porziņģis, who could be the club’s next star. leader.
This year, the Knicks have started rebuilding the staff of the “head office”. Leon Rose has become the president of the unit, as well as Brock Aller, a former Clavland “Cavaliers” salary specialist, who helped Cleveland get Imman Champert and Earl “JR” Smith. These players were important figures in the Cavs, which helped Cleveland play four times in the final between 2015 and 2018 and win once.
The Knicks from another league in Utah, Jazz, also lured Valt Perin, vice president of staffing, and Frank Zanin, one of Oklahoma City’s leading scouts, both as assistants to general manager Scott Perry. Perry and Perin have previously worked together on the Detroit Pistons.
Former agent Rose, who has extensive contacts in the NBA environment, is looking to build a strong “head office” and coaching staff to bring basketball back to the highest level in New York.
