Knicks to Meet with Woodson, Fizdale and More

After firing Jeff Hornacek within hours of their season ending last week, the New York Knicks are starting to extend their search for a new coach. He was teammates at Princeton with Knicks' president Steve Mills, which made Blatt a rumored candidate for the NY before Hornacek was hired.

Just hours after the New York Knicks beat the Cleveland Cavaliers, head coach Jeff Hornacek was relieved of his duties. He coached the Knicks to a 60-104 record in two seasons. A few teams didn't like the direction they were headed in terms of coaching, and more will likely follow as the offseason rolls on for teams that didn't make the playoffs.

Over the last few days, names like former Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson and former Memphis Grizzlies coach David Fizdale have surfaced as potential candidates to replace Hornacek.

Metta inked a two-year deal with the Knicks in 2013; however, the team waived the National Basketball Association veteran less than a year later after buying out his contract. "I think they will make the right decisions, so we have to trust them". He did so due to frustration over the drama and dysfunction surrounding the organization. At the end of the day, you want to come to NY, based on my body of work there. But that was my goal, man: to bring a championship to New York City.

Porzingis was limited to 48 games this season, as a torn ACL cut his campaign short. Porzingis has faith in the new Knicks' front office management. Mills and Perry can offer Porzingis a five-year, $157 million extension during free agency. I want it to be mutual.

There is no timetable for Porzingis' return, but he is expected to be sidelined until at least December.
