The New York Knicks part ways with coach Jeff Hornacek
13 Апреля, 2018, 02:08 | Author: John Swanson
Hornacek was informed of the decision upon the team's return home following their regular-season finale against the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. During his time as their coach, the Knicks gained their sixth-worst record in the National Basketball Association by going 60-104.
The Knicks' associate head coach, Kurt Rambis, was also fired.
The Knicks intend to contact Villanova's Jay Wright about their head coaching vacancy, the Daily News has learned.
"Jeff is a true professional who has worked tirelessly for this organization the last two seasons", a statement from the front office read.
NY made the first of what are expected to be several coaching changes this offseason, joining Milwaukee, Phoenix and Memphis on the market.
Stackhouse is now head coach of the Raptors' affiliate in the G League. Van Gundy's run was the Knicks' most recent period of sustained success; NY has won just one playoff series since Van Gundy left early in the 2000-01 season. That doesn't mean it isn't something Knicks fans will harp on until the next coach officially signs on the dotted line.
Jackson coached the Golden State Warriors for three seasons through 2014, leading the club to back-to-back playoff appearances for the first time since 1992.
Former team president Phil Jackson hired Hornacek ahead of the 2016-2017 season. "Management informed Hornacek of decision upon returning to NY late tonight".
The Knicks finished the season with a record of 29-53, which now has them picking 9th in the NBA Draft.
Without much talent to work with, the Knicks never established a clear identity, frustrating Hornacek with their defensive inconsistency (they are ranked 22nd in defense) and looking a step behind the league's best offenses.
