Reports flooded the newswire this past weekend in regards to current Golden State Warriors assistant coach Luke Walton interviewing with Phil Jackson to potentially be the head coach of the New York Knicks next season. Walton, who had previously played for the Jackson on the Los Angeles Lakers years ago, has been on the Knicks radar for quite some time. Today though, NYDN’s Frank Isola clears things up while also revealing that Walton has no interest in coaching the struggling franchise.

Isola shares that the two spoke via phone and saying that is was “an interview” is somewhat a stretch. Apparently, Walton told Jackson that he is not interested in the position and per Isola, is unsure if the two will speak on the subject again.
