NEW YORK — Don Chaney met with New York Knicks president Scott Layden on Sunday to work on details of an agreement that would keep Chaney coaching the team at least for the rest of the season.

Chaney, with a career NBA coaching record of 266-382, guided the Knicks to a 101-99 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Saturday night after Jeff Van Gundy's unexpected resignation.

"I'd love to coach here and if it works out, fine. I'm happy," Chaney said. "I have two goals: To win a championship and to be a head coach. I won two championships as a player and I'd like to win one as a coach before I set sail."

Chaney let point guards Mark Jackson and Charlie Ward call more of their own plays Saturday night, a freedom they did not have under Van Gundy.

Several players said they looked forward to pushing the ball upcourt more than they did under Van Gundy while still playing the type of tenacious defense the Knicks have become known for.

They also said Chaney's laid-back demeanor will be a welcome change from Van Gundy's personality.

Layden was not available for comment Sunday. A team spokesman said the Knicks would talk about their coaching job Monday.
