3. STACKHOUSE TO THE KNICKS?: The Knicks' coaching search continues, with Jerry Stackhouse reportedly talking to Phil Jackson about an assistant coaching gig. He talked with Pro Basketball Talk about Rick Carlisle's influence:

He mentioned Avery Johnson, Gregg Popovich, Larry Brown and Doug Collins as being coaches whose systems he would most like to emulate, but also was open to taking something from the more modern analytic side after spending time with Rick Carlisle in Dallas.

"With Rick Carlisle and his analytics of the game, it drove me nuts as a player," Stackhouse said. "He wanted to run this play that hadn't been working in the game, because for him it was a 70-something percent play. Now I understand that I want to go with a 70 percent play, and just because it doesn't work it still is a good play for us."
