Mitch Lawrence: Knicks ready to hire Mike Woodson

Mitch Lawrence reports on the Daily News that the Knicks might hire Mike Woodson as the designated defensive assistant coach next week:

In the past few days, Woodson had told two confidantes that he expects to join the Knicks. The move might become official next week, according to sources, when Garden and team executives return from vacation.

There hasn't been any word on other interviews or candidates since his interview so this perhaps shouldn't be any surprise. I'm sure owners will be eager to end the lockout to allow Mike Dubs to implement defensive strategies once his deal is completed.
