Mike Woodson's contract is guaranteed for this season. But the Knicks have a team option for next season. So Woodson is one of a handful of coaches whose job status is a bit shaky.

In fact, ESPN Insider Amin Elhassan says Woodson is sitting on one of the five hottest seats in the NBA entering 2013-14.

Writes Elhassan: "New York is an unforgiving town, and both the fan base and ownership expect superlative results immediately. ... Further complicating matters, the shocking switch in basketball leadership from Glen Grunwald to Steve Mills with the start of training camp just days away can't come as good news, as an incumbent head coach under a new regime usually spells doom."

Question: Do you think Woodson deserves to be on the hot seat entering this season? Do you think he will be coaching the Knicks next year?
