Will Knicks Look to Bring Back Thomas?
Back in August 2010, James Dolan tried to hire Isiah Thomas as a consultant.
The hiring was essentially nixed by the NBA because of Thomas’ position as head coach of Florida International University, which created a conflict of interest.
That conflict of interest no longer exists; Thomas was fired by FIU on Friday.
Is it only a matter of time before the Knicks bring Isiah back into the fold?
Then again, does it really matter?
After all, Thomas has served as an unofficial consultant to Dolan for three years after he was fired in 2008. Dolan himself admitted as much when his attempt to hire Thomas fell through in 2010.
