All this talk about Carmelo Anthony has taken some of the attention away from the coaching issues going on with the Knicks in New York.

Reports indicate Knicks head coach Mike Woodson will be shown the door when the season ends in a few weeks, and whoever replaces him could have a major impact on Melo's decision to stay in New York or leave for greener pastures.

Bulls head coach Tom Thibodeau has been linked to the Knicks job for months, but Friday, another high-profile name was thrown into the mix.

Phil Jackson, the Zen Master himself, reportedly met with the Knicks about two weeks ago, according to ESPN.

However, don't get your hopes up to see the legendary coach on the sidelines again. Jackson, who has 11 NBA championships to his name (including six with Michael Jordan in Chicago), said he was not interested in the position.
