The Knicks created some non-trade buzz today when they parted ways with coach Mike D'Antoni and named Mike Woodson the interim coach. Here's what's going on in the Big Apple:
- University of Kentucky coach John Calipari tried to swat away speculation that he would be interested in the Knicks job as his team prepares for the NCAA tournament, writes Dick Weiss of the New York Daily News.
- Don't look for Phil Jackson on the sidelines at Madison Square Garden any time soon either, as ESPN's Ramona Shelburne and Marc Stein report he and the Knicks have not talked about the coaching position.
- ESPN's John Hollinger believes the problems with the Knicks are more closely tied to the declining skills of Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire than any Mike D'Antoni coaching deficiency. (Insider only)
