Knicks hire Kentucky's Kenny Payne as assistant coach

NEW YORK (AP) Tom Thibodeau made the first addition to his New York Knicks coaching staff on Tuesday, hiring Kenny Payne as an assistant.

Payne has spent the last 10 years at Kentucky, where he has been John Calipari's associate head coach since 2014. He was part of the staff that won the 2012 national championship and won its first 38 games in 2014-15.

Thibodeau said Payne has "an outstanding ability to forge relationships with players."
