With the Knicks once again in the dumps as the regular season comes to an end, it appears a change at head coach is bound to happen.
According to The New York Times' Marc Stein, there aren't many in the NBA that believe Hornacek will be finishing the final year left on his contract with the Knicks. New management in team president Steve Mills and GM Scott Perry want their own head coach. Hornacek was brought in by former president Phil Jackson, and they supposedly want everything involving him wiped clean.
So who could be a potential target to replace Hornacek? It looks like former Knicks point guard, Mark Jackson, is a top candidate early on.
"The former Knicks guar Mark Jackson keeps coming up as a hot name to succeed Hornacek, amid a growing belief the Knicks' front-office chief -- Scott Perry -- will want to install his own hand-picked choice heading into next season," Stein wrote in his newsletter.
Knicks reportedly likely to part ways with Hornacek after season
