Will the New York Knicks dump Jeff Hornacek this summer?
There was a report in January that stated that the New York Knicks are already looking for a replacement for head coach Jeff Hornacek. And that they’re even considering former Golden State Warriors coach and Knicks player Mark Jackson.
Frank Isola of the New York Daily News says that NBA executives don’t expect the Knicks to keep Hornacek past this season.
Mills and Perry have two important upcoming dates on their schedule: the Feb. 8 trade deadline and April 11, the last day of the regular season. The latter gives them plenty of time to evaluate Hornacek’s job performance. Hornacek has one year left on his contract and a lot of executives around the league do not think Hornacek will be back even though the Knicks have done better than most expected.
Given the fact that Scott Perry and Steve Mills did hire Hornacek and that he was Phil Jackson’s guy, this isn’t a surprise.
If the Knicks do part with Hornacek, I would love to see them bring in Jackson, who was a huge part of helping the Warriors become the team they are today. It would also be a great fit since he’s a former Knick and is a native New Yorker.
