  • Report: Knicks dismiss head coach Jeff Hornacek

Hornacek finished his time at the Knicks with a 60-104 record, leaving the team looking for a replacement. Still, there is a great deal of risk here and Villanova has always been considered Wright's dream job.

Wright has also stated his desire to make Villanova the Duke of the Northeast. "But I have to give this up in order to do that, and I don't see that happening". Now, anything is possible, but don't expect him to change his mind. The Knicks are determined to stay the course on drafting and player development as they await the return of All-Star center Kristaps Porzingis, who isn't expected back until midway through next season as he recovers from a torn ACL. The long-time assistant experienced some success in his only head-coaching gig with the Memphis Grizzlies, leading what is now one of the worst teams in the league to the playoffs last season.

"We would like to thank Frank for his contributions to the Orlando Magic", Magic basketball operations president Jeff Weltman said. While the move worked out just fine for the Cavs as they went on to win their first-ever title under Ty Lue, Blatt all but vanished as he went to Turkey to coach.

Wright, 56, had received heavy interest from teams after each of Villanova's previous Final Four appearances during his tenure as head coach - Kentucky in 2009 and the Phoenix Suns in 2016 - but remained at the university.

Coaches say a lot of things that seem like denials, especially college coaches, and Wright didn't technically mention the Knicks by name.

As noted above, Wright is coming off his second national championship in three years with the Wildcats. Though he was sacked after that year (2014) and Golden State won the title in 2015, he is credited with building the foundation that has led to the Warriors' success.

Iowa State's career assists and steals leader, Hornacek played for the Cyclones from 1982-86.

Mills and Perry might want to provide Jackson with a homecoming, the St. John's alumnus having been drafted by the Knicks in 1987.
