The New York Knicks will add Jim Cleamons to new coach Derek Fisher's staff, the Los Angeles Times reported Monday.

Cleamons, a longtime NBA assistant, served on former Milwaukee Bucks coach Larry Drew's staff last season.

Knicks president Phil Jackson and Cleamons have a long history of working together -- first with the Chicago Bulls and then with the Los Angeles Lakers. Cleamons was on Jackson's coaching staff for numerous NBA titles.

Cleamons and Fisher also previously worked together when Cleamons was an assistant coach and Fisher a point guard for the Lakers form 1999 to 2004.

The Lakers' reunion in New York includes Kurt Rambis, a longtime Jackson assistant who is part of Fisher's staff.

Cleamons and Rambis are both expected to help Fisher install the triangle offense that Jackson ran with the Bulls and Lakers.

Cleamons spent nine years as a player in the NBA with the Lakers, Cleveland Cavaliers, New York Knicks and Washington.
