New York Knicks owner James Dolan reportedly isn't done trying to bring ex-general manager and head coach Isiah Thomas back into the fold.
According to Frank Isola of the New York Daily News, Dolan has been attempting to persuade Thomas into coming back to the Big Apple. However, Thomas is unsure about what he'd like to do.
"Isiah is very close with Jim Dolan but he’s told me that he’s not ready to jump back into the NBA just yet," said the source, who was with Thomas on Friday at the Basketball Hall of Fame induction ceremony in Springfield, Mass. "There’s this perception out there that Isiah is desperate to get back, but that’s false. I think it will eventually happen but just not now."
Dolan tried to hire Thomas a few years ago, but the move was vetoed by the NBA due to Thomas being a college coach at Florida International University.
