Derek Fisher's name back in the Knicks coaching search Published: May 15, 2014

Phil Jackson and the New York Knicks, forced to regroup after being trumped by Golden State in the race to hire Steve Kerr, relaunched their coaching search Thursday.

And Derek Fisher's name is back in the fold. The 39-year-old Thunder guard said he will retire after these playoffs, and ESPN reports that Fisher is on a short list of former Phil Jackson pupils being looked at for the Knicks job.

Denver Nuggets coach Brian Shaw, who played with Fisher under Jackson with the Los Angeles Lakers, told the Denver Post "I'm not interested in doing anything other than what I'm doing right now." Other reported candidates are Iowa State head coach Fred Hoiberg, as well as Luke Walton and Tyronn Lue, who are each assistants in the NBA. Lue is on Doc Rivers' staff with the Los Angeles Clippers.
