The report said the Clippers have reached out to the former Knicks coach and president about taking over their chronically underachieving organization.
Thomas was the Knicks' president from 2003-08. He took over as coach in 2006 and went 56-108 in two tumultuous seasons before getting fired in 2008 and spending a year as a consultant.
He also was sued for sexual harassment by former team executive Anucha Browne Sanders and lost in a 2007 court case.
The Clippers are 21-28 and without No. 1 overall pick Blake Griffin, who will not play this season because of a knee injury. The Knicks - who are owned by Cablevision, which also owns Newsday - will visit the Clippers on April 4 in the last game of a five-game western trip.
As expected, Danilo Gallinari was named to the three-point contest for All-Star weekend. He will face Chauncey Billups, Paul Pierce, Daequan Cook, Stephen Curry and former Knick Channing Frye. Gallinari also will play in the rookie-sophomore game . . . The Knicks wore a No. 15 patch to honor Dick McGuire, who died Wednesday. McGuire's banner on the Garden rafters was changed from a white background to blue so it will stand out from the other banners for the rest of the season.
