Knicks fire Hornacek after two seasons

Knicks fire Hornacek after two seasons

Counting his time as the Phoenix Suns' head coach from 2013-14 to the middle of the 2015-16 season, Hornacek has a career 161-216 record.

Stackhouse and Wright are both intriguing candidates.

Head coach Frank Vogel was sacked by the Orlando Magic on Thursday. Either way, Wright is about to cash in.

But by Wright's own words, he's probably not going anywhere. Blatt played at Princeton with Mills and Knicks vice president of player development Craig Robinson. Fizdale has Miami Heat DNA which is never a bad thing.

Jackson, for one, did well in developing a winning culture at Golden State, while Stephen Curry was a superstar-in-the-making. From 1994-2001, he was the head coach at Hofstra.

The smart money is on Blatt or Fizdale to get this job. But it's a hurdle.

And most of all, they acknowledged that in the past it was often the abandoning of these principles that led to turmoil.

Knicks fans should be used to watching their seasons end in epic failure, but 2018 was really something special. His authority inside the locker room was usurped from the start by Jackson's apparent belief that he was the most handsomely paid (at $12 million a year) offensive coordinator in the history of professional sports, hired primarily to impose his beloved triangle offense on the coach of his choosing.

NY management is reportedly considering others for the position as well.

The legal classification of workers has been a major issue for "gig economy" companies that rely on independent contractors. The judge sided with Uber and granted their motion, entering judgment in favor of Uber as a matter of law.

The Lakers aren't good yet, but the guys who are already in purple and gold could be key pieces in a very good team.

Hardaway Jr.'s comments come in after the Knicks fired Jeff Hornacek.

Jeff Van Gundy has demonstrated that he is ready to return to a full-time coaching job.

Frank Vogel was brought to Orlando two years ago with hopes he could get the Magic back to the playoffs, and stop the spinning of the revolving door to their coaches' office. Yes, it's been a lean two decades.

Jackson was sacked by the Warriors in 2014 and he has since been working in broadcasting.

Steve Kerr replaced Jackson and the Warriors have won two National Basketball Association titles in the past three seasons.

This season, with the team decimated by injuries - most notably a season-ending ACL tear suffered by Kristaps Porzingis - the Knicks went 28-54.

This is an important period for the club especially with the Knicks facing an uncertain future. Different scenarios, but each one created clear avenues for success for both coaches. He spent his first two years with the New York Knicks, then was traded to the Atlanta Hawks and spent two seasons there, and now he just finished another season with the Knicks.
