Jackson Tells Carmelo He Expects To Hire Steve Kerr

Phil Jackson told Carmelo Anthony he expects the New York Knicks to hire Steve Kerr as head coach.

Jackson and Anthony met for dinner in Manhattan last week.

Anthony will be a free agent on July 1.

Anthony and Jackson didn't discuss any other candidates coaching the Knicks.

"Phil wanted [Anthony] to know that Kerr and his thinking will simply be an extension of himself," one of the sources said. "He wanted Carmelo to know he'll still be able to coach him by extension."
