"Knicks brass evidently did not agree, as Hornacek, who was hired by Mills and Phil Jackson in the summer of 2016, helmed the team to his second straight disappointing season". Since he abruptly resigned in 2001, the Knicks have appeared in 25 total playoff games.
Along with Rivers remaining with the Clippers, the Kings plan to retain Coach Dave Joerger for a third season despite a 59-105 record over his first two, according to Aldridge.
Robinson, the ex-Oregon State head coach and brother of former United States First Lady Michelle Obama - now is the Knicks' vice president of player and organization development and is considered a long-shot candidate, according to Isola.
A 13-year veteran, Perkins also was with Cleveland during training camp this season and spent time with its Canton G-League affiliate.
Hopefully, the next Knicks coach will stay longer than two years.
Orlando fired Frank Vogel on Thursday, and the futures of Charlotte coach Steve Clifford and Detroit president/coach Stan Van Gundy are expected to be determined in the coming days. Hardaway Jr. joined the team previous year. Fizdale is popular among some of the league's most influential players, in part because of his time as an assistant coach with the Miami Heat.
So, they're looking for a new coach and a fresh start. NY has won just one playoff series since Van Gundy left early in the 2000-01 season. Those three teams made coaching changes during the regular season, inserting interim head coaches.
Jackson and Van Gundy have head coaching experience and winning records. JVG, Mark Jackson, David Fizdale, and Monty Williams seem to be the short list of guys who could come in and replace Hornacek. Dolan often seems more concerned with the reputation of his blues band than he does with the Knicks and there doesn't appear to be able signs that he understands what it takes to create a sustainable, successful National Basketball Association franchise. Both have their NY ties, with Jackson having a ton of success playing here, and JVG being the last coach to have the Knicks as the talk of the town in the late 90's/early 2000s. But he wasn't the right person to lead this latest Knicks rebuild. I'm on board with their decisions. "A good coach is willing to embrace all those things". Let the search begin.
