*pokes the sleeping Knicks organization with a stick*

The New York Knicks still don't have a coach, and don't appear to be in a hurry to hire one. That could prove troublesome, as David Blatt -- one of the two coaches Phil Jackson has actually interviewed for the job, and the only one with any track record of competence -- is meeting with the Houston Rockets on Monday.

The Rockets have already interviewed Mike D'Antoni and their own associate head coach, Chris FinchThey've also been in touch with Frank Vogel's people.

Speaking of Vogel, he is apparently near the top of the Memphis Girzzlies' list, according to Adrian Wojnarowski. Vogel is set to begin evaluating his options sometime this week after spending last weekend unwinding after his stunning dismissal from the Indiana Pacers.

One team that will not be interviewing Vogel is the Sacramento Kings, who have already found their man in former Grizzlies coach Dave Joerger:

The Knicks, of course, can easily top that money -- they did for Derek Fisher, would had precisely zero coaching experience when he was hired. Will they end up in a bidding war with a more popular coach like Blatt or Vogel, or will they just sort of hide under the proverbial pile of coats and wait for everything to work itself out?

A.B.R. You know what I'm talking about.
