Add Mavericks assistant Jamahl Mosley to the list of candidates for the Knicks‘ coaching job. Mosley has received permission to interview for the post, tweets ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
Mosley is in his sixth season in Dallas and has been the team’s defensive coordinator for the past two years. He also interviewed for the Cavaliers’ head coaching job last year, Wojnarowski notes. Mosley is especially good at building relationships with players and has helped to develop Luka Doncic, including working with him on his pregame routine, according to Tim MacMahon of ESPN (Twitter link).
Before coming to Dallas, Mosley spent four seasons as an assistant with the Cavs and five seasons with the Nuggets. He has served as head coach of the Mavericks’ Summer League team and was an assistant to Gregg Popovich at the USA Basketball minicamp in 2018.
Mosley joins a growing list of candidates in New York that already includes Tom Thibodeau, Kenny Atkinson, Mike Woodson, Ime Udoka, Pat Delany, Chris Fleming and Will Hardy, along with interim head coach Mike Miller.
