The Knicks have ramped up their background work on coaching candidates Mike Budenholzer and David Blatt.
Both were connected to the job almost immediately and recent rumors make it seem like Budenholzer is very interested in the prospect of living and working in New York. The Knicks have interviewed both candidates recently and at this point they appear to be the clear frontrunners for the job.
