Knicks Rumors: Tom Thibodeau is still the favorite for the role of HC

The New York Knicks have 11 candidates for the vacancy as head coach, but Tom Thibodeau is reportedly ahead of the rest.

Mike Vorkunov of The Athletic reported that Thibodeau “remains first place” to be the Knicks’ next manager. Thibs was considered a favorite for much of the trial because of his existing relationship with Knicks’ new basketball operations president Leon Rose, a former agent with whom he has a strong friendship.
