Jeff Hornacek may be directing his last games at the head of the New York Knicks. The Big Apple franchise, wanting to clean up any piece that remains of Phil Jackson’s project, seems inclined to switch technicians once the season is over, reports Marc Stein of the New York Times.
Hornacek leads with only two campaigns at the head of the team and still has one more contract, but that will not stop the new management of New York. With Steve Mills in the presidency and Scott Perry as general manager, the reports handled by the aforementioned journalist suggest that the office wants to place a coach of their confidence as head of the team next summer.
Although that decision is not firm, it doesn’t prevent the emergence of names to occupy Hornacek’s chair. Thus, and always according to Marc Stein, Mark Jackson and David Blatt appear as two names to consider. Jackson was a Knicks base for six years (1987-92 and 2000-01), while Blatt was a teammate of Steve Mills at Princeton.
