Patrick Ewing a “Little Insulted” by Offer to Coach Knicks D-League Team
I don’t know what he and Brian Shaw have done, but they can’t seem to get a head coaching job no matter how many times they interview.
Unless you count this D League offer.
The big man turned down the offer because he wished to remain in the NBA, the source said. Ewing has served as an assistant coach for eight seasons, with the Washington Wizards, Houston Rockets and, most recently, the Orlando Magic.
One source close to Ewing said the Hall of Famer felt a bit slighted by the Knicks’ offer to coach the Erie Bayhawks because he has already established himself in the NBA.
“Patrick has paid his dues,” the source said. “He was a little insulted.”
