On Wednesday, New York Knicks head coach Derek Fisher finalized the rest of his coaching staff for the 2014-2015 season and it's got a definite Los Angeles Lakers feel to it.

Already on Fisher's staff is former Lakers player, head coach and assistant coach Kurt Rambis, who will be Fisher's lead assistant on the team. Also on the team is another former Lakers assistant coach Jim Cleamons.

To go along with Rambis and Cleamons, the following will be on Fisher's staff:

  • Rasheed Hazzard; Hazzard was a former Lakers assistant from 2006-2011
  • Brian Keefe; Keefe comes over from the Oklahoma City Thunder where he was an assistant coach for seven years
  • Joshua Longstaff; Longstaff also comes from the Thunder where he worked with the team's player development for the last four years

The coaching staff was confirmed by Marc Berman of the New York Post on Wednesday night.

Fisher's staff will have the Lakers feel mixed in with Fisher's last team that he played with in the Thunder and together, they will instill Phil Jackson's triangle offense that brought the Chicago Bulls six championships and the Lakers five championships.
