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

Jeff Hornacek lasted just two seasons with the Knicks

Jeff Hornacek lasted just two seasons with the Knicks

Mills and Perry said they informed Hornacek of his firing upon the team's return to suburban NY following a flight back from Cleveland, where the Knicks beat the Cavaliers 110-98. The Knicks reportedly intend to contact Wright to gauge his interest in replacing Jeff Hornaceck, whom they fired Thursday morning after two losing seasons. "He's a good man and he took it well".

Jeff Hornacek and the New York Knicks were impressive at the start of the season but haven't been able to accomplish much as the season has progressed, especially after Kristaps Porzingis went down with an injury.

Jackson seems to be the early favorite for Knicks fans as a former star player for the team as well as coaching the Golden State Warriors team that would win the NBA Finals one year after his departure. While he's spent his time working as an analyst, rumors of him clashing with management in Oakland seems to be a reason why he hasn't been able to secure another head coaching job in the National Basketball Association. The Magic will be looking for its fifth coach since firing Stan Van Gundy after the 2011-12 season, which also was the last time it made the playoffs.

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

Stackhouse has been the head coach of the Toronto Raptors' G-League affiliate, Raptors 905, since last season and led them to a league title and was named Coach of the Year. In Hornacek's first season in New York, Jackson requested that Hornacek blend elements of the triangle offense with what the coach preferred to run.

The Knicks finished the season with a record of 29-53, which now has them picking 9th in the NBA Draft.

Hornacek was hired by the team's previous president, Phil Jackson, who parted ways with the club in June 2017 followed a disastrous three years on the job. "It's hard to do anything because all you're thinking about is not to mess up".

"They made the best of a tough situation by playing with great effort, positive energy, enthusiasm, all throughout a hard season", Vogel said.
