Knicks Fire Struggle Coach Jeff Hornacek After 2 Seasons

Knicks Fire Struggle Coach Jeff Hornacek After 2 Seasons

The Knicks, who fired head coach Jeff Hornacek after two seasons on Thursday, are said to believe Wright would be ideal for the rebuilding club. NY also plans to contact Jerry Stackhouse, the head coach of Toronto 905, the Toronto Raptors' G League affiliate, according to sources.

After winning his second championship in three seasons with the Wildcats, Wright has become one of the hottest coaching candidates in recent memory.

NY defeated the Cavaliers 108-95 earlier Wednesday. Those three teams made coaching changes during the regular season, inserting interim head coaches. While he's spent his time working as an analyst, rumors of him clashing with management in Oakland seems to be a reason why he hasn't been able to secure another head coaching job in the National Basketball Association. Robinson now works in the Knicks front office (and is also the brother-in-law of Barack Obama). Last season, Stackhouse led 905 to the G League title and was named G League Coach of the Year. The Knicks finished this season 29-53, good for 11th place in the Eastern Conference. He was quickly snapped up by the Miami Heat as an assistant, simply a placeholder as he'll receive plenty of interest this offseason. Injuries did not help his cause this season, with Kristaps Porzingis lost to a torn ACL in February and Tim Hardaway Jr. missing significant time with a leg injury earlier in the campaign.

Only I would say that all the teams around the world - maybe in two years we spent more - but over an average of five or 10 years a lot of teams spend a lot of money.

Wojnarowski also reports that former Memphis Grizzlies coach David Fizdale, former Cleveland Cavaliers coach David Blatt, and former Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson are among the candidates to replace Hornacek.

Things have been a little old school during the last few years in the Big Apple, with remnants of Phil Jackson's tenure still in place, despite his dismissal prior to the start of the 2017-18 season. Kurt Rambis, the associate head coach under Hornacek, was also dismissed.

Blatt fell victim to the mid-season firing bug, being let go by the Cavs right before the 2016 All-Star break - though that had more to do with his inability to get LeBron James to like him than his ability to coach. Mills and Perry apparently weren't pleased with the results, though they knew the Knicks were rebuilding with younger players.
