Isiah Thomas is hesitant about accepting an official position to return to the New York Knicks.

Thomas and Garden chairman James Dolan have had numerous discussions about a position in the organization, according to a source.

“Isiah is very close with Jim Dolan but he’s told me that he’s not ready to jump back into the NBA just yet,” said the source. “There’s this perception out there that Isiah is desperate to get back, but that’s false. I think it will eventually happen but just not now.”

Thomas and Dolan speak frequently.
