New York Knicks: 5 goals for the 2018 offseason

I want them to want me.

The New York Knicks are looking north of the border for a new head coach.

Woodson, who has been Doc Rivers' top assistant with the Clippers the past four seasons, was the Knicks' most successful head coach since Jeff Van Gundy, guiding them to their most recent playoff berth, in 2012-13, when the club posted a 54-28 record.

NY also planned to contact Jerry Stackhouse - coach of Raptors 905, Toronto's G League affiliate - according to sources. "I think they will make the right decisions, so we have to trust them".

Blatt has said he wants another chance in the National Basketball Association, and he's a possible candidate for a good number of the current or looming job openings around the league.

The 43-year-old Stackhouse has been at the helm of the Raptors' G-League affiliate for two seasons following one year as a Raptors assistant. He was so frustrated with the front office dysfunction-primarily stemming from former president Phil Jackson-that he chose to skip his exit meeting.

If he were to get hired, this would be Woodson's second stint with the Knicks. Porzingis reiterated Saturday that he wants to stay in NY long term.

The Knicks and Porzingis are entering a pivotal offseason.

Porzingis will be a restricted free agent in 2019 but could have a $150 million contract extension this summer, which may not happen now because of his season-ending ACL tear. The organization seemed comfortable with the idea of making that offer before Porzingis' injury. "It's tough to imagine already that decision and me trying to make that decision right now".

"It all depends on how I can come [back] from the injury and how I move", Porzingis said.

There is no timetable for Porzingis' return, but he is expected to be sidelined until at least December.
