New York Knicks News: James Dolan, Isiah Thomas Meet

New York Knicks owner James Dolan met with former coach Isiah Thomas on Friday in what is being described as a "business meeting" by the New York Post.

The meeting took place at the Mandarin Hotel in Midtown. The Post has some details.

A band of security men surrounded the two men who were both dressed in business suits in a quiet corner of the lobby. Thomas has lobbied to return to the organization since he was fired as the Florida International basketball coach last spring. The meeting took place two days after the resignation of MSG sports president Scott O'Neil, who, according to a source, helped convince Dolan rehiring Thomas wasn't a good move for the Knicks brand.

Of course, it isn't likely that Thomas is a candidate for the MSG sports president position, but anything is possible.

The Post speculates that it's feasible that Thomas could return to the team in a coaching consultant role, since Knicks head coach Mike Woodson is short an assistant.
