Knicks parting ways with Hornacek

Jeff Hornacek led the Knicks to a 29-53 record this season and was 60-104 in his two seasons with the franchise

According to ESPN the two-year head coach was given his walking papers when the Knicks returned to NY after the team won the meaningless final game of the season (couldn't even tank right). Another Jackson hire, Kurt Rambis was also let go in the process but given that he was even less popular than Hornacek in NY, we doubt any tears will be shed over that move either.

The New York Knicks intend to reach out to Villanova head coach Jay Wright about their head coaching vacancy.

The Knicks went 29-53 this season after winding up 31-51 in Hornacek's first year on the job.

Mills and Perry stated: "Jeff is a true professional who has worked tirelessly for this organization the last two seasons".

National Basketball Association insider Adrian Wojnarowski has has details on the Knicks coaching search.

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

Isola named Mark Jackson, Doc Rivers, Jerry Stackhouse, Craig Robibson, Jeff Van Gundy, David Blatt and David Fizdale as possible candidates for the opening. The long-time assistant experienced some success in his only head-coaching gig with the Memphis Grizzlies, leading what is now one of the worst teams in the league to the playoffs last season. NY has won just one playoff series since Van Gundy left early in the 2000-01 season. The combination hindered the Knicks all season, as NY finished 2016-17 ranked 18th in offensive rating. The Knicks are determined to stay on the course of drafting and player development as they await the return of their All-Star center Kristaps Porzingis, who is recovering from a torn ACL and isn't expected to return until midway through next season. They lost more than 50 games and missed the playoffs both seasons under Hornacek. Blatt is now coaching in Turkey.
