(Mike) Dunleavy, who has a 613-716 record in 17 seasons as coach of the Lakers, Bucks, Trail Blazers and Clippers, appeared on ESPN Radio’s “The Herd with Colin Cowherd” Thursday and was asked if he thinks he has a shot at the Knicks’ job.

“I hope so,” he said. “I played in the triangle system down in Houston. It was kind of left over from when Tex Winter coached there. All my teams, I’ve run it as a transition set. The part of that was also the fact that I was thinking at some point in the playoffs, we’ll run into Phil’s teams, and by the time we get there, my guys will run the triangle very well and be prepared to play them.

“Maybe I’m the outside guy from the other guys that he’ll talk to, former players who played in the system and other guys who coached under him in the system. But at least I do know the system. I have run it.”
