If Steve Kerr wants to leave the broadcasting booth and head to an NBA bench, he could be the top candidate for the New York Knicks head coaching job, according to a report.

USA Today, citing a single source, reports that Kerr could be the "front runner" for the Knicks job, which is expected to be open this summer.

The newspaper also reports that veteran Oklahoma City Thunder guard Derek Fisher could be another candidate.

Both Kerr and Fisher played for Knicks president Phil Jackson and would be natural fits to implement Jackson's triangle offense in New York.

Kerr, who won three titles under Jackson as a player with the Bulls, is currently an analyst for TNT. He has no coaching experience but served as an executive in Phoenix.

Jackson is expected to fire Knicks coach Mike Woodson after the season. Woodson has one year left on his contract.
