Knicks NBA head coach search: Jay Wright, David Blatt, Mark Jackson

  • Report: Knicks dismiss head coach Jeff Hornacek

Wojnarowski reported Hornacek was told of the decision after the team returned from its season-ending game in Cleveland.

"Jeff is a true professional who has worked tirelessly for this organization the last two seasons", said Knicks president Steve Mills and general manager Scott Perry in a joint statement.

Hornacek's firing comes only days after the Rangers canned fifth-year head coach Alain Vigneault.

Apparently, the New York Rangers aren't the only tenant at Madison Square Garden without a head coach these days. According to Frank Isola of the New York Daily News, Knicks management believes Wright would be a flawless fit for a rebuilding club, but a source says, "It would take a lot for him to leave".

Jackson was sacked by the Warriors in 2014 and he has since been working in broadcasting. And yes, Wright said on the Pardon My Take podcast in February that in a very hypothetical scenario, if he was to coach an National Basketball Association team, it would be the Knicks. Still, Wright would be the biggest "splash" move that the Knicks could make by a considerable margin.

Without much talent to work with, the Knicks never established a clear identity, frustrating Hornacek with their defensive inconsistency (they are ranked 22nd in defense) and looking a step behind the league's best offenses. Right now, rumors are that they will contact David Fizdale, Mark Jackson and David Blatt. The Knicks are determined to stay the course on drafting and player development as they await the return of All-Star center Kristaps Porzingis, who isn't expected back until midway through next season as he recovers from a torn ACL.

Last season, Stackhouse's first as head coach, Raptors 905 won the Central Division at 39-11, and captured the G-League title, beating the Rio Grande Valley Vipers.
