The New York Knicks are hiring Jim Cleamons to be a part of Derek Fisher's coaching staff, according to Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times.

Cleamons spent last season on Larry Drew's staff in Milwaukee, but there have been rumblings that he'd wind up in New York ever since Phil Jackson came aboard as team president. Cleamons was an assistant under Jackson for title-winning teams in Chicago and Los Angeles, and he can help the Fisher install the triangle offense. Alongside Jackson, he coached Fisher from 1999 to 2004 with the Lakers.

Longtime Jackson assistant Kurt Rambis is also on Fisher's staff, serving as the lead assistant.
