TNT Analyst and former NBA player, Kenny "The Jet" Smith is set to interview for head coach of the New York Knicks on Friday.
Smith has never coached in the NBA but played for 10 seasons on six different teams including two championships with the Houston Rockets. Known now as an entertaining analyst on TNT's NBA shows, Smith seems like more of a surprise option for the Knicks coaching position. David Fizdale, Mark Jackson, David Blatt, and Jerry Stackhouse are also expected to receive interviews for the position. Jeff Hornacek was relieved of his duties last week after going 60-104 over two seasons as the Knicks head coach.
