The story of the New York Knicks‘ search for a head coach is unfinished, although it has been quite interesting so far.
Despite president Phil Jackson's inclination to make interim coach Kurt Rambis the head man for next season, a number of rumors involving other candidates have swirled around the web.
Carmelo Anthony reportedly wants Tom Thibodeau to come to the Big Apple. Former Knicks great Patrick Ewing even declared himself as a possible candidate for the opening.
However, the possible coach drawing the biggest headlines lately has been Golden State Warriors assistant, Luke Walton.

While Steve Kerr was recovering from back surgery, Walton steered the Warriors' ship to a 39-4 record. He's now one of the most highly demanded head coaches on the market.
Jackson supposedly talked to Walton about coaching the Knicks over the last few days, and it was reported that Walton had declined the opportunity.
According to Jackson, none of that went down.
Press accounts of coaching actions are untrue. Nobody has been asked nobody said no.

It's hard to believe that the media just came up with their stories out of thin air; maybe there's something else we're missing here.
Either way, this statement at least keeps the hope alive for Knicks fans who want Walton to run the show moving forward.
