Pros and Cons of signing Kenny Atkinson

The New York Knicks are in need of a new head coach after former head coach David Fizdale was fired after two seasons of losing. Kenny Atkinson is a candidate right now after he parted ways with the Brooklyn Nets. Atkinson can bring pros and cons to who ever hires him.

Pros

  • He coached good with players who were not good at times
  • He has made the playoffs these last two seasons on the Nets
  • Atkinson helped revive D Angelo Russel's career

Cons

  • Some players have not had a great relationship with him (Irving, Durant, Russel) which is partly why he got fired
  • He played in a lackluster conference
  • He struggled with star players (Kyrie)
