ESPN – Walsh fires Thomas, keeps him with the franchise for ‘input’ – NBA

At long last, Isiah Thomas is out as head coach of the New York Knicks.

But he’s not totally gone.

In one of the most anticlimactic firings in NBA history, incoming Knicks president Donnie Walsh announced late Friday afternoon he was relieving Thomas of his coaching duties. But Thomas, still owed $18 million after receiving a long-term contract extension 13 months ago, will remain in the organization with no official title.

That last sentence leaves me with few ideas why he wasn’t fired outright:
a) Dolan didn’t want to have to pay out a lump-sum settlement on that idiotic contract extension;
b) Isiah knows his chances of getting another NBA are non-existent and begged Dolan to keep him on in some kind of capacity, or
c) Zeke’s got major league dirt on Jimmy Boy.
