The New York Knicks will bring in former Cleveland Cavaliers coach Mike Brown for an interview for their head coaching job, The Athletic’s Shams Charania reported Monday morning.

Brown joined the Golden State Warriors back in 2016 as an assistant coach and is now the associate coach behind Steve Kerr for the Dubs. He was previously with the Cavaliers in two separates stints — 2005-2010 and a reunion tour in 2013. Brown got his start with the San Antonio Spurs in 2000, helping Gregg Popovich and Co. win a championship in 2003. Brown would go on to face the Spurs in the finals with the Cavs in 2007.

The Knicks head coaching search has been ongoing with a few names popping up as candidates. We know that the team is considering bringing in former Bulls and T-Wolves head coach Tom Thibodeau. New York is expected to interview around 8-10 candidates with Mavericks assistant Jamahl Mosley and Magic assistant Pat Delany on that list. It’s nice to see the Knicks being diligent about one of the most important coaching hires in the teams history.

Here’s the list of potential Knicks head coaching candidates we know of so far:

Mike Brown
Ime Udoka
Pat Delany
Will Hardy
Mike Woodson
Tom Thibodeau
Jason Kidd
Mark Jackson
Mike Miller
Becky Hammon
Darvin Ham
Johnnie Bryant
Kenny Atkinson
