The Knicks' press conference to announce the hiring of Derek Fisher will be live at 11:30 AM on MSG (and ESPN and NBA.com, at least in part, from the look of things). I'll watch and keep track of what's said for a post to come. In the meantime, the assistant coaching staff may already be taking shape. Howard Beck tweeted right after Fisher got hired that Kurt Rambis was the likeliest of a slew of Phil Jackson's old Laker friends to join Fisher's staff. Marc Berman seconds the rumor with a source furthering that Rambis will probably become Fisher's top assistant. They'll need to spring him from his previous job first: Derek Fisher, set to be announced Tuesday as the new coach of the Knicks, is expected to hire triangle offense guru Kurt Rambis as his top assistant, according to a source.
