NEW YORK (AP) - The Stanley Cup finals won't be the only big sports news coming out of Madison Square Garden this week.
The New York Knicks have scheduled a news conference for tomorrow morning, amid reports that Derek Fisher has agreed to become the team's new head coach. Several media outlets cited unnamed sources saying the longtime NBA guard agreed to terms with the Knicks on a deal that was still being finalized.
The 39-year-old Fisher just completed his 18th season, finishing his career with the Oklahoma City Thunder. He played for Knicks president Phil Jackson when Jackson was coaching the Lakers.
Fisher replaces Mike Woodson, who was dismissed after failing to get the Knicks into the NBA playoffs this season.
