Things between the New York Knicks and Steve Kerr seem to be heating up.  Peter Botte of the New York Daily News is reporting that Kerr met with Knicks team president, Phil Jackson, on Friday.

Botte confirmed that Kerr is interested in the Knicks job.

Kerr admitted to the New York Daily News that Jackson is the only reason he’s pursuing the job.

“We talked about the coaching position and we’ll keep talking,” Kerr told the Daily News on Sunday on his way into Barclays Center, where he called Game 4 of the Nets-Raptors series for TNT. “I’ve made it pretty clear the past couple of years that I’d like to get into coaching, and now it’s sort of out there. It’s like anything else, you have to explore it and that’s what we’re doing.”

“It’s the only reason I’m talking to them, I wouldn’t have known anybody else in the Knicks’ organization,” Kerr said. “The fact that Phil took this job was the connection. Of course, he was my coach and I have a ton of respect for him. And I’m honored that he’s talking to me about the job.”

It’s Kerr’s job to either accept or turn down at this point.
