The New York Knicks are attempting to secure a deal with Steve Kerr to become their next head coach after the first round of the NBA Playoffs concludes.

Kerr appears to be the top choice of Phil Jackson.

The Knicks are concerned other coaching jobs will become available as teams are eliminated from the playoffs, which could become attractive to Kerr.

Coaching sources believe the Golden State Warriors would have strong interest in Kerr if they part ways with Mark Jackson.
