Jeff Hornacek’s job with the New York Knicks is safe, for now.
New York Knicks’ general manage Scott Perry spoke with the media on Wednesday, a day after star forward Kristaps Porzingis suffered a torn ACL against the Milwaukee Bucks.
One of the things Perry was asked about, was whether or not they would make a head coaching change before the season ends.
“No, we’re not looking to make any changes,’’ Perry said, via the New York Post. Jeff and his group are working really hard with this basketball team and doing the very best they can and obviously this is an adversity for them to deal with KP being out, but I’m confident that they’ll be able to do a good job of keeping this team playing hard and playing together. That’s what we’ll be looking at moving forward.’’
Hornacek deserves to finish out the season, but there have been rumors that the Knicks could go after guys like Mark Jackson or Doc Rivers as possible replacements.
Of course, Rivers is still with the Los Angeles Clippers, but there is a chance that he could be let go.
Jackson did a great job in helping the Golden State Warriors become the dynasty that they are today.
