Knicks owner James Dolan reportedly had a business meeting with Isiah Thomas, in an attempt to possibly bring him back to the franchise:
 
The one person standing in the way of Isiah Thomas officially returning to the Knicks is Isiah Thomas.
 
According to a source close to the former Knicks president, Thomas and Garden chairman James Dolan have had numerous discussions about a position in the organization, but Thomas has been reluctant to accept the job offer.
 
“Isiah is very close with Jim Dolan but he’s told me that he’s not ready to jump back into the NBA just yet,” said the source, who was with Thomas on Friday at the Basketball Hall of Fame induction ceremony in Springfield, Mass. “There’s this perception out there that Isiah is desperate to get back, but that’s false. I think it will eventually happen but just not now.”
 
Thomas, who presented inductee Chet Walker at the ceremony, did not return phone calls on Saturday. One day earlier, he was spotted in a Manhattan hotel having breakfast with Dolan, which according to the source is not uncommon.
 
“They’re friends. They talk all the time,” the source added.
 
If I were a Knick fan, I don't think I'd be very happy about this relationship. Isiah Thomas' time as the Knicks general manager was a total disaster, and now that the team is back on the right path, bringing Thomas back is way too risky. It could bring a lot of negative energy and distraction to the team. As a friend of Thomas, Nolan probably feels like the right thing to do is to give him another shot at redeeming himself. I'm just not sure this is the right time to do it.
