The New York Knicks are considering Luke Walton and Brian Shaw to replace Derek Fisher. Fisher was fired by the Knicks on Monday and Kurt Rambis was promoted to the interim head coach’s position.

Walton is currently having a tremendous stint as interim head coach. He is also familiar with the triangle offense and Phil Jackson, which make him a favorable candidate for the post. Shaw was fired last season by the Denver Nuggets. Tom Thibodeau is also a coaching free agent, as reported by the Real GM.

ESPN’s Marc Stein wrote that Walton is determined to finish this season as Golden State Warriors’ interim head. He would only entertain the head coach’s offer during the off-season.

Kurt Rambis will be serving as an interim head coach as of now, following the removal of Fisher. Rambis had a stint as head coach with Minnesota Timberwolves and was an assistant coach of Derek Fisher’s staff. He is also a close confidant of Phil Jackson.

Brian Windhorst also tweeted that Walton and Shaw are considered for head coach.
