Knicks Daily Links: Tuesday

Top Headline: Tom Thibodeau should be Phil Jackson's top candidate to replace Derek Fisher.

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

The first goal for Kurt Rambis? To get the Knicks' defense to improve. Rambis referenced the team's slide on that end of the floor during his press conference. The club ranks 19th in defensive efficiency. Rambis also plans to retain all of Fisher's assistants and may add one more.

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Phil Jackson said that "there is a certain amount of levity to Kurt (Rambis)." The implication here is that Rambis' personality differs from that of Fisher, who wasn't known to take a light-hearted approach to his job.

Where do the Knicks go from here? (2:02)

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Phil Jackson made it clear today that he's going to try to improve the roster this summer in free agency. "We need a player who is going to move us forward even farther." The Knicks will have at least $19 million to spend in free agency this summer.

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

This is probably the most important description that Phil Jackson offered today about his next coach: "Someone has to match the style of the way we do things. There's a certain style that I have that I think works and I've found (to work) before."

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Phil Jackson said that running the triangle offense "is not paramount, but is important" for his next head coach. I'd be surprised if Phil hired a coach who wasn't committed to the triangle. Don't rule out the idea that Kurt Rambis stays on if the Knicks do well under him.

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Here's Phil Jackson on the Matt Barnes-Derek Fisher incident and if that impacted his decision to fire Fisher: "No one's happy about what happened or what came out of that. It was embarrassing for us and for Derek. That had nothing to do with what's happened here today."

Ian Begley ESPN Staff Writer 

Thought this was interesting: in a meeting with Derek Fisher and some members of the coaching staff last month, Phil Jackson told Derek Fisher: "I may not have mentored you as well as I could have."

Ohm Youngmisuk ESPN Staff Writer 

Phil Jackson said Derek Fisher's firing was not due to Fisher's recent comments about focusing on the process rather than making the playoffs. "I didn't react to Derek's comments last week about the playoffs not being important and whatever's not a measure," Jackson said. "The understanding was turning around a team that's won 17 games and making a 40, 42-win season out of it... Saying that, we still think there's a way for (the players) to play better. "
