Rumor: Mike D’Antoni Will Not Coach Next Season
Former New York Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni is no doubt capable of coaching again in the NBA, but it seems as though he is ready to take some time off. Rumors say the Orlando Magic would be interested if the team fired Stan Van Gundy; however, D’Antoni may not want to go there, New York Post.
A person close to D’Antoni said the coach is likely to remain in New York “for personal reasons’’ as his son finishes high school in Westchester.
However, D’Antoni will coach this summer in London for the 2012 Summer Olympics.
