Knicks Fire Jeff Hornacek After 2 Seasons

Knicks Fire Jeff Hornacek After 2 Seasons

That's unclear, though one coach with ties to Van Gundy believes he would have interest in the Knicks job if management approached him.

That might be what the Knicks are keying in on, but it also might just be that Wright is the shiniest diamond out there at the moment.

Stackhouse, who now coaches in the G-League for Toronto's minor-league team, is regarded as a strong candidate for the Orlando Magic head coaching job.

Rookies Lonzo Ball, Kuzma and Josh Hart all showed clear National Basketball Association ability, while youngsters Brandon Ingram and Julius Randle continued their development into above-average pros. Los Angeles' 35-47 record and 11th-place conference finish in the just-completed season are its best performances by a considerable margin during this woeful five-year stretch. "It's been tough throughout my career having different coaches and different philosophies, different style of plays throughout this entire time".

If the Knicks are looking for a player's coach, then Fizdale might just be that given his reputation as someone who builds strong relationships with most of his players.

"One thing he's going to bring to a team is his work ethic".

Hardaway said he's not sure what type of coach it will take to succeed here. "He's a good manager of personalities as well".

Former Grizzlies coach David Fizdale, former Cavaliers coach David Blatt, who is now coaching in Turkey and former Warriors coach Mark Jackson is among the top candidates for the position of head coach, according to ESPN league sources.

Blatt has Princeton connections with both Knicks president Steve Mills and VP of Player Development Craig Robinson.

Hornacek was hired by the team's previous president, Phil Jackson, who parted ways with the club in June 2017 followed a disastrous three years on the job.

Weltman also has a connection on the current Raptors' coaching staff, assistant coach Nick Nurse, who is expected to be considered for the Magic job. Would I like to coach in the NBA? Yes.

Meanwhile, if Wright goes to NY, he's walking into an obvious rebuild (because the Knicks are perpetually rebuilding) but without the safety net that Stevens got in Boston. He played for the Knicks for two seasons (1994-95 and 1995-96) and is well-respected by members of the Knicks organization.

In addition, Associate Head Coach Kurt Rambis has been relieved of his coaching duties.

This season, with the team decimated by injuries - most notably a season-ending ACL tear suffered by Kristaps Porzingis - the Knicks went 28-54.

The shooting guard has had four head coaches in the five years since he entered the league.
