John Calipari reached out to the New York Knicks to express interest in their president of basketball operations job.

The Knicks, however, do not have interest in Calipari at this time. Calipari presumably would want the dual role of head coach and president.

Calipari has been at Kentucky since 2009. Calipari was briefly in the NBA in the 1990s with the Nets and has been connected to a number of openings in recent seasons. Calipari appears to have interest in returning to the NBA, at least at some point before he retires.

With more former players currently in the NBA than any other college coach, Calipari would seem to be a natural fit for a big market franchise like the Knicks in terms of free agent recruitment.
