Wilkens to meet with Knicks brass Saturday
All signs point to Lenny Wilkens resigning as coach of the New York Knicks on Saturday, ESPN's Stephen A. Smith reported Friday night.
Wilkens reportedly met with Knicks president Isiah Thomas after New York's last-second loss to Houston on Friday night and indicated he would likely resign as head coach.
The Knicks expect that he will tender his resignation Saturday morning. The team has been slumping, but Smith said that family issues are a factor in Wilkens' decision.
