"We sincerely appreciate his efforts and considerable contributions to the team and wish him well in his future endeavors".

"Knicks dismissed coach Jeff Hornacek, league sources tell ESPN". The loss brought New York's record to 29-53, and left the Knicks with the ninth best odds in next month's NBA Draft Lottery.

The New York Knicks will be looking for different answers next season.

Hornacek went 60-104 in his two seasons with the Knicks, and is 161-216 over four-plus seasons with the Knicks and Phoenix Suns. That's unclear, though one coach with ties to Van Gundy believes he would have interest in the Knicks job if management approached him. Now Perry, who started as a GM in July, will be able to hire his own coach. Mills and Perry apparently weren't pleased with the results, though they knew the Knicks were rebuilding with younger players.

The New York Knicks are high on Jay Wright of Villanova and intend to contact him about becoming their next head coach. Jackson was largely responsible for the success of the team and was inexplicably let go after a 50 win season with the then up-and-coming roster. Van Gundy's run was the Knicks' most recent period of sustained success; NY has won just one playoff series since Van Gundy left early in the 2000-01 season.

Jackson coached the Golden State Warriors for three seasons through 2014, leading the club to back-to-back playoff appearances for the first time since 1992. "Management informed Hornacek of decision upon returning to NY late tonight". The combination hindered the Knicks all season, as NY finished 2016-17 ranked 18th in offensive rating. He spent six-plus seasons with the team during his 17-year career and is held in high regards by most Knicks fans.
