Report: Mike Woodson Will Be Fired By Trade Deadline


Mike Woodson seems to have been on the hot seat since he got to the Knicks so I don’t know if this latest report will phase him. is reporting that Woodson could be out by the trading deadline on February 20th:

You know what they say about a sinking ship? The rats desert the ship and the captain goes down with it — and coach Mike Woodson may be on his last days afloat.

Left behind to explain the team’s latest round of troubles were Woodson and a pair of veterans, Tyson Chandler and Amar’e Stoudemire.

And what they had to say wasn’t exactly reassuring — Woodson’s words not encouraging for the team’s fading chances and in particular, the usually positive Stoudemire’s words not encouraging for Woodson, whom one league source said could be removed before the Feb. 20 trade deadline.

It seems like Mike Woodson firing rumors happen as often as Pau Gasol trade rumors. While may end up happening, there is never ending speculation about it. I don’t know if firing Woodson will fix the Knicks though. To me, this starts with the way the team is built.
