The coach of the team with the 25th-ranked defense in the NBA would like to have ... wait for it ... better defensive players on the roster. Yes, that’s correct: New York Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek told reporters on Monday that the front office will be focused on adding defensive-minded players in the offseason. The Knicks have surrendered 108.6 points per 100 possessions -- just 0.1 points better than their neighbors, the Brooklyn Nets.

“I think if you look at our defense this year, we can use some more defensive players,” Hornacek said, via ESPN’s Ian Begley. “[Management] will look at that. [General manager] Steve [Mills] and [president] Phil [Jackson] and those guys will look at whatever can help us out. We know we need some help there.”

Adding a few more versatile defenders and making upgrades at key positions would make Hornacek’s job much easier. For all of the attention (rightfully) given to the triangle offense in New York, the team has been terrible mostly because of the porous defense. The 2016-17 Knicks can’t keep teams out of the paint, can’t protect the defensive glass, can’t force turnovers and can’t stop fouling people.
