Should Knicks have reached out to Phil?

According to sources, the Knicks are expected to announce Mike Woodson as the team's next head coach in the coming days.

As far as we know, they did not reach out to Phil Jackson. A source said the Knicks were hesitant to reach out to Jackson because of his age and the hefty contract offer that it would likely require to entice him.

They also did not reach out to John Calipari, who never publicly expressed interest in the job. And they apparently never reached out to Stan Van Gundy, who was let go by the Orlando Magic on Monday.

Do you think that was a mistake? Should the Knicks have reached out to outside candidates like Jackson or were they right to focus on Woodson?
