Jeff Hornacek's daughter: The coach Knicks fans didn't see

Knicks fire head coach Jeff Hornacek and some big names are candidates to replace him Report: Knicks dismiss head coach Jeff Hornacek

Jeff Hornacek was "dismissed" as head coach of the Knicks early on Thursday morning, the team announced.

"The NBA does intrigue me". Stands for BKN-Knicks Wrapup.

The NBA's regular season is over, which means it's time for both the playoffs and for coaches of the non-playoff teams to get fired (if they already hadn't gotten canned over the previous 82 games). Jackson is a local guy, born and raised in Brooklyn, who also spent time playing for the Knicks.

Ever since they took over the Lakers' basketball operations a year ago, Magic Johnson and general manager Rob Pelinka have founded their rebuilding project around the acquisition of one or two elite free agents this summer - or next summer, they've recently amended.

Jackson was eventually hired by Golden State prior to the 2011-12 season and went 23-43 during the lockout year. According to a source close to the club, Knicks management believes Wright would be a ideal candidate for a rebuilding club.

Blatt has Princeton connections with both Knicks president Steve Mills and VP of Player Development Craig Robinson.

Imagine Jay Wright giving up what he's built at Villanova, and what could lie ahead in the next ten years, for a failed three-year stint with the Knicks where everyone said it was a bad idea from the start. He preached defense but then refused to play his better defensive players more minutes and instead blamed his players for not trying hard enough. 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.

Robinson, the ex-Oregon State head coach and brother of former United States First Lady Michelle Obama - now is the Knicks' vice president of player and organization development and is considered a long-shot candidate, according to Isola. Still, every assistant coaching job he had before that was in college.

Williams, now the vice president of basketball operations with the San Antonio Spurs, is familiar with the NY market. There, Mills and Perry led head coach Jeff Hornacek into a conference room and informed him he was sacked. The franchise can not afford any more drama or another short stint for a head coach. He played for the Knicks for two seasons (1994-95 and 1995-96) and is well-respected by members of the Knicks organization. No program in the country is set up to become a dynasty right now better than them.
