According to ESPN, Knicks president Steve Mills and the team's general manager Scott Perry told Hornacek he was sacked after they returned to NY after beating the Cavs 110-98 at the Quicken Loans Arena. In total, the Knicks went 60-104 in two years in his tenure and given his feud with Joakim Noah and occasional clashes with Kristaps Porzingis, it was was time for NY to look in another direction as they rebuild.

Mills and Perry continued: "Kurt has been a big part of the Knicks over these last four seasons, as both an associate head coach and interim head coach". The best fit? That is for Mills and Perry to determine as they begin the Knicks' latest coach acquisition phase.

The New York Knicks are prepared to see whether Jay Wright's magic touch can work in the National Basketball Association.

NY is targeting the summer of 2019 to explore the free-agent market in a serious way, when the team could have significant salary-cap space and Porzingis is back to full strength. From Wright's perspective, it would be unquestionably lucrative to jump to the Knicks (with his stock never higher than it is today) and, if things went well, he could own the city of NY.

The Knicks beat the Cavaliers 110-98, though Cleveland largely rested their stars.

Stackhouse is considered a top coaching candidate after he guided Toronto's G-League team to a championship a year ago.

Hornacek was hired by the team's previous president, Phil Jackson, who parted ways with the club in June 2017 followed a disastrous three years on the job.

NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Knicks will open their offseason with a coaching search.

The Knicks have won only one postseason series since 2002 and didn't get close to competing in one under Hornacek, running their streak to five straight 50-loss debacles. The Knicks finished this season 29-53, good for 11th place in the Eastern Conference.

"Jeff is a good guy", forward Michael Beasley said after Wednesday's victory. This combination created all sorts of problems for the Knicks all season long as they ended up finishing the season with 18th rank in offensive rating. "It's hard to do anything because all you're thinking about is not to mess up".
