Knicks adding assistant coach to staff

Boston Celtics G League coach Darren Erman is finalizing a deal to join Tom Thibodeau’s staff with the New York Knicks, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

Erman coached the Maine Red Claws to a 28-14 record in 2019-2020, third best in the G League, after spending several years as an assistant in the NBA.

He was an assistant coach for the Golden State Warriors for three seasons (2011-2014), Boston Celtics for one season (2014-2015) and New Orleans Pelicans for three seasons (2015-2018).

Erman was then the associate head coach for the Pelicans during the 2018-2019 NBA season before coaching the Red Claws last season.

He’ll join Mike Woodson, Andy Greer, Johnnie Bryant, Kenny Payne and Dice Yoshimoto on Thibodeau’s staff.
