The New York Knicks are searching for their new head coach with Tom Thibideau being one of the main candidates among other NBA coaches.

According to Marc Berman of the NY Post, the chances to sign New York native Karl-Anthony Towns, if there is any chance in the future, will be close to zero with Thibodeau in the “helm”.

“The drawback to hiring Thibodeau is it hurts the chance of acquiring Wolves stud Karl-Anthony Towns if he’s put on the block. That’s too bad since president Leon Rose is his former agent. The Post reported in December Towns was a target in the Knicks’ pursuit of a star demanding a trade — which has become vogue in the NBA,’ Berman wrote in his recent mailbag.

The president of the New York Knicks Leon Rose was Town’s agent in the past, while several reports suggest that the team could pursue a trade for an established star if the Knicks try to speed up their rebuilding process in the future.
