Jeff Hornacek is likely coaching his final season with the New York Knicks.
The New York Knicks have been a complete disaaster during the second half of the season and most of the blame should fall on head coach Jeff Hornacek.
Now, there’s no doubt that losing Kristaps Porzingis certainly hurt the Knicks. But they have guys like Michael Beasley and Tim Hardaway Jr. that could have picked up the slack for the most part. Unfortunately, it now doesn’t look like the team has responded to Hornacek the way the Knicks would have liked.
Marc Stein of The New York Times mentioned in his recent newsletter (via CBS Sports) that Hornacek is not expected to be back next season with the Knicks.
Jeff Hornacek has one year left on his contract, but good luck finding league observers who believe he will survive to see it out.
Hornacek is a good coach, but he’s not good enough to be able to take the Knicks to the next level.
With Doc Rivers doing a great job with the Los Angeles Clippers this season, I don’t believe he’ll end up with the Knicks. But if New York is smart, they’ll hire Mark Jackson to take over the reigns.
