Former Knicks European scout believes Blatt would help Frank and KP

“He’s a winner and a teacher of solid basketball — be it NBA, Euroleague, Israeli league or the Russian national team in the Olympics,’’ said former Knicks European scout Tim Shea, an NBA consultant on overseas players. “KP [Kristaps Porzingis] and Frank Nitti [Ntilikina] need him as he is the most qualified to finally make international players that arrive in New York comfortable and productive. He’d be a godsend.”

It’s no big secret Porzingis didn’t gravitate toward recently fired Jeff Hornacek’s — or Kurt Rambis’ — coaching. Hornacek and Rambis were fired at Westchester County Airport after the Knicks returned from their season-finale win at Cleveland on April 11.
