NEW YORK – The New York Knicks are preaching patience but also want progress. Thus, they have fired Jeff Hornacek after two 50-plus loss seasons in the Big Apple.
“We looked out and we have a plan for what this team should look like over the next three years or so,” Knicks President Steve Mills said. “We just thought this was an opportunity where we thought it was the right time to make a change.”
Mills and general manager Scott Perry said they didn’t see enough improvement on the court and enough communication and accountability off it. They informed Hornacek of their decision at the airport after flying home from a season-ending victory in Cleveland.
