Dolan Told Woodson to Dump Agent

The Daily News first reported earlier this week that Woodson was negotiating an extension with the Knicks, but Woodson has now denied that twice this week, including again on Thursday.

“That’s not true, not at all,” Woodson said Tuesday prior to the Knicks’ Game 5 loss in Miami.

Woodson remains friendly with Brown, with whom he worked in Philadelphia and Detroit.

Brown in 2006 signed a five-year, $50 million deal with the Knicks that quickly went South.

Dolan fired him after one season and Brown received an $18.5 million settlement.

Multiple reports indicate Woodson is close to signing with Creative Artists Agency, which also represents Kentucky coach John Calipari and Carmelo Anthony, who has endorsed Woodson on multiple occasions.

Woodson on Thursday reiterated that he would like to return as coach of the Knicks.

“I’ll have an opportunity to sit down with ownership — Mr. Dolan and [GM] Glen Grunwald,” Woodson said. “I definitely do want to come back and we’ll see how it turns out.”
