Assuming the Knicks resist the temptation to suit him up, Patrick Ewing is set to join MSG’s postgame coverage of Wednesday’s game against the Magic and again March 31 against the Celtics.

Ewing, 50, has been an assistant coach with the Wizards, Rockets and Magic and has said he someday would like a shot with the Knicks. For now, though, dabbling in media work must suffice.

“The Garden is home, New York is home, the fans always appreciated what I brought to the table when I played,’’ he said in a news release. “I’m really looking forward to working with MSG. It will be a great learning experience for me, and I’m excited to be on the other side of the mic.”
