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.

Some might blame Kristaps Porzingis' injury for it, but it's important to note the Knicks were already 23-32 with any realistic chances of a playoff berth all but gone. They missed the playoffs both seasons under Hornacek.

Yet independent of the Knicks' struggles, the reality is that Hornacek was not hired by their general manager, Scott Perry.

That might be what the Knicks are keying in on, but it also might just be that Wright is the shiniest diamond out there at the moment.

Jackson would be the low-hanging fruit in the Knicks' coaching search, and he makes some sense.

Jeff Hornacek got caught in the middle.

Fizdale was sacked by the Grizzlies early this season after a strong opening campaign in 16-17. The season spiraled even further when Hornacek and veteran Joakim Noah clashed during a road game in January at Golden State. The Knicks carried a winning record into Christmas, a.500 mark into the New Year and were four games out of the Eastern Conference's final playoff spot when Porzingis went down. "We just thought there was an opportunity to, again, get someone who really fit where we want to be three-five years from now". They informed Hornacek of their decision at the airport after flying home from a season-ending victory in Cleveland.

The Knicks have reportedly cut ties with head coach Jeff Hornacek. He had one year left on his three-year, US$15 million (S$10 million) contract.

"It would be great to have a coach I could have for more than two years, you know", Hardaway said Thursday. Knicks chroniclers could write books on the epic feuds between Hubie Brown and Dave DeBusschere; Rick Pitino and Al Bianchi; Pat Riley and Dave Checketts; Jeff Van Gundy and Ernie Grunfeld; Larry Brown and Isiah Thomas.

"If management says accountability for the guys and the ballclub, then someone that can lead in that aspect and can show it throughout the entire season, I guess". Mills is expected to meet the media Thursday afternoon to discuss the firing. "He's a good man and he took it well".

Mills and Perry reiterated that owner James Dolan supports the patient approach they are taking with the Knicks' rebuild.
