Knicks fire coach Jeff Hornacek

Knicks fire coach Jeff Hornacek

"Jeff is a true professional who has worked tirelessly for this organization the last two seasons", the Knicks said in a statement. "We sincerely appreciate his efforts and considerable contributions to the team and wish him well in his future endeavors".

The front office finished the clean-up by firing Hornacek and former Jackson partner-in-crime Kurt Rambis, who held assistant coach duties with the team.

At the hands of LeBron James, Blatt was unceremoniously and surprisingly fired halfway through his second year as Cleveland Cavaliers head coach. The loss brought New York's record to 29-53, and left the Knicks with the ninth best odds in next month's NBA Draft Lottery.

She called it a silver lining after the fall outside her Nashville home in November that caused her to receive almost 50 stitches. She said she is coproducing her new album with writer/producer David Garcia , whom she called "an awesome teacher and partner".

In total, the Knicks went 60-104 in two years in his tenure and given his feud with Joakim Noah and occasional clashes with Kristaps Porzingis, it was was time for NY to look in another direction as they rebuild. From Wright's perspective, it would be unquestionably lucrative to jump to the Knicks (with his stock never higher than it is today) and, if things went well, he could own the city of NY.

Hornacek's tenure, which produced a record of 60-104, was marked by problems from the start. That's unclear, though one coach with ties to Van Gundy believes he would have interest in the Knicks job if management approached him.

The Knicks will also be entering an enticing free-agent market in the summer of 2019.

With two NCAA titles over a three-year period, Villanova head coach Jay Wright is the hottest college coaching candidate in the business when it comes to a potential jump to the National Basketball Association.

NY hasn't reached the playoffs in five seasons and has one playoff series win in the past 18 years. Overall, Hornacek was 60-104 during his tenure in NY.

There are several names being floated around as potential candidates, including former Memphis Grizzlies head coach David Fizdale, ex-Cavs coach David Blatt and former Knick Mark Jackson. This season, Stackhouse's club won the G League's Eastern Conference title but fell to the Austin Spurs in the finals.
