Miller (not to be confused with former NBA player Mike Miller) was the G League Coach of the Year back in the 2017/18 season. He spent four seasons leading the Westchester Knicks before being promoted to the NBA’s bench as an assistant on Fizdale’s staff. Miller has 60 games left in the season to make his mark on the Knicks.

Charania also reports that former NBA player Keith Bogans will become an assistant on Miller’s staff. Bogans had been on the team’s coaching staff in Westchester.

    Need Mark Jackson
    Doesn’t matter who coaches this year to many guys on the team playin selfish for their next contract.

      I dont understand why jackson never got another chance after he helped prep the warriors young player pre-dynasty. that’s also the reason why I’m not sure he’d take the Knicks gig if offered. considering he’s been passed over repeatedly jackson probably only gets 1 more chance to prove he’s a solid NBA coach and we all know the Knicks history with coaches/gms/presidents/shi**y ownership

      There’s a reason Mark Jackson hasn’t had a coaching job in five years, and a reason the Warriors took off the second he was fired. They’re the same reason: he’s not a good coach.

    gotta believe the hope with Miller and bogans is to focus specifically to develop the young guys by any means necessary
