Mike Woodson and several assistant coaches on his staff fear they will be fired by the All-Star break, multiple league sources tell SheridanHoops.com.
Herb Williams is the leading candidate to replace Woodson on an interim basis for the remainder of the season as The Bergen Record first reported.
Sources say the All-Star break would be the ideal time for the Knicks to make a midseason change, if they elect to do so. The move would allow a new assistant coaching staff and Williams to become acclimated with each other while the team is off from Feb. 13-18.
On Friday, the Knicks crushed the Nuggets 117-90. On Sunday, the Knicks took a step back and fell to the Thunder 112-100.
New York returns home Wednesday to face Sacramento in the team’s final game before the All-Star break. Knicks management will then determine whether a new voice is needed to lead the team going forward after an underwhelming first half of the season.
