While the New York Knicks technically don't have a head coach right now, Kurt Rambis is still acting as one.

Rambis served as the team's interim head coach over the final 28 games of the 2015-16 regular season. The former Minnesota Timberwolves head coach took over in February when Derek Fisher was fired.

Although the Knicks are in the midst of a “coaching search” which has really only seen them interview former Cleveland Cavaliers head coach David Blatt, Rambis represented the Knicks at the NBA Combine today. Via Ian Begley of ESPN:

Maybe Rambis is there because Phil Jackson has him lined up for a scout, assistant coach or an executive position. Or maybe it's simply because Rambis is the Knicks' head coach, but just hasn't officially been announced as such.

It's become clear Jackson wants his guy to be running his style of offense in New York for as long as he's the team president. Rambis fits that description as it's getting harder to see anyone else being the Knicks' head coach for the 2016-17 season opener.
