Jeff Hornacek fired by New York Knicks after 2 seasons
Apr 13, 2018, 02:44
The Knicks haven't made the postseason since 2013, and have one playoff series win in the past 18 years.
Former team president Phil Jackson hired Hornacek ahead of the 2016-2017 season.
The report also references several additional candidates for the Knicks opening, highlighted by Mark Jackson, Jerry Stackhouse, David Fizdale and current Clippers head coach Doc Rivers.
The NBA's regular season is over, which means it's time for both the playoffs and for coaches of the non-playoff teams to get fired (if they already hadn't gotten canned over the previous 82 games).
According to Begley, Mills added that one factor the Knicks will aim at would be the coach understanding the complexities of today's players and the game, including the use of modern analytics and strength training. The combination hindered the Knicks all season, as NY finished 2016-17 ranked 18th in offensive rating.
Hornacek was 60-104 (.366) overall in his two seasons at the helm in NY. Still, they apparently expected more this season, which started well but quickly fell apart after injuries to Tim Hardaway Jr. and later the season-ending loss of All-Star Kristaps Porzingis.
Jackson's only three seasons of coaching experience came with the Warriors, who he guided from a 23-43 record in his first year to a 51-31 record in his third year.
Hornacek is 161-216 and has never reached the postseason as an National Basketball Association coach. Though he was sacked after that year (2014) and Golden State won the title in 2015, he is credited with building the foundation that has led to the Warriors' success. In this competitive market, the glamour of Madison Square Garden coupled with the resources and willingness to pay a lot in terms of coaching salary gives NY a distinct advantage in recruiting available candidates.
Perry said there's no timeline for naming a new head coach.
