N.Y. Knicks hire Kurt Rambis as associate head coach

NEW YORK — The New York Knicks have hired Kurt Rambis as associate head coach, reuniting him with former Laker and head coach Derek Fisher.

Knicks president Phil Jackson made the announcement on Monday. Fisher played for the Los Angeles Lakers for eight seasons, and Rambis spent 13 seasons on the Lakers bench, including seven under Jackson.

Jackson says, “The three of us are similar in our philosophies and our approach to the game.”

Rambis was part of eight NBA title teams with the Lakers, either as a player, assistant coach or adviser/assistant general manager.

He was head coach with the Lakers and Minnesota Timberwolves over three seasons.

Rambis finished his third stint as an assistant coach with the Lakers last season.
