The Denver Nuggets introduce new head coach Brian Shaw

Sorry, Knicks fans. After weeks of speculation over New York Knicks president Phil Jackson’s intrigue with luring Denver Nuggets coach Brian Shaw to Madison Square Garden, Denver president Josh Kroenke made it clear to Yahoo Sports that it isn’t going to happen.

“It isn’t happening.” Brian has said publicly — and privately to us — that his desire is to be here, and we feel strongly about him as our coach,” Kroenke told Yahoo Sports. “I don’t foresee a scenario or circumstance where he’s going to be anywhere but with the Nuggets next season.” The Knicks haven’t reached out for permission to speak with Shaw, who went 36-46 in an injury-plagued first season as coach of the Nuggets. Denver is expected to return several key players from serious injuries next year, including Danilo Gallinari, JaVale McGee and Nate Robinson.

So the Knicks lost out on Steve Kerr, Mark Jackson went back to ESPN and Brian Shaw is not leaving the Nuggets.  What’s the plan Knicks?
