Negotiations between Steve Kerr and the New York Knicks continued on Monday, but the two sides could not reach a deal, according to a league source. Negotiations are expected to continue Tuesday as the Knicks and Kerr try to finalize a contract that will make the TNT broadcaster the next coach at Madison Square Garden.

One source with knowledge of the talks said Monday that the Knicks’ preference is to ink Kerr to a four-year contract.

A five-year deal would give Kerr the same contract length as Knicks president Phil Jackson, though the final year in Kerr’s deal may contain a team option.
