Stackhouse, an 18-year veteran who last played in 2012-13, expressed an interest in coaching during his interview with Donahue.
"I'd love to coach. The pro level is where I think I'd be best," Stackhouse said. "I know what I didn't want to play against so I think I'm a better defensive coach than an offensive coach."
Steve Kerr is the odds-on favorite to coach the Knicks. He has a strong relationship with Jackson and has met with the Knicks president to talk about the job.
Cartwright talks Knicks' gig: Bill Cartwright is another candidate for a position on the Knicks' bench.
He talked to Jackson about taking a position late last week.
"I’ve been in contact with Phil and hopefully that works out the right way," Cartwright said on SiriusXM NBA Radio. "I’m a big believer. In my life I’m kind of guided to where I’m supposed to be and if I’m supposed to be there, I’ll be there."
Kerr likes Hardaway Jr.: We know that there's at least one Knick who will be in good standing if Kerr takes the Knicks' job. Kerr is clearly a fan of Tim Hardaway Jr. He voted for Hardaway Jr. on his NBA Rookie of the Year ballot. It was Hardaway Jr.'s lone first-place vote. Philly's Michael Carter-Williams won the award. ... Carmelo Anthony finished 14th in MVP voting, receiving one fourth-place vote and one fifth-place vote.
