Knicks Fire Mentor Jeff Hornacek

Jeff Hornacek of the Knicks looks on against

The Post's Tim Bontemps had the news early Thursday that NY had fired Jeff Hornacek after two bad seasons.

Sources said Mills and Perry informed Hornacek of his firing upon the team's return to suburban NY following a flight back from Cleveland, where the Knicks beat the Cavaliers 110-98.

Hornacek was hired in 2016 by Phil Jackson and lasted just one more season after Jackson and the team parted ways last summer.

"He told me years ago that he wanted to make Villanova into the Duke of the Northeast", says a person close to Wright. That said, JVG hasn't coached in 11 seasons and it remains to be seen if he's even interested in leaving his job as an ESPN NBA analyst.

This season, Mills and Perry said they would evaluate Hornacek based on the development of younger players and the team's improvement on defense over the course of the season. Hornacek's dismissal was an expected part of the new regime's efforts to retool the team. "He played the hand he was dealt".

The Knicks finished this season at 29-53, going 5-20 after the season-ending knee injury to Kristaps Porzingis.

Along with Rivers remaining with the Clippers, the Kings plan to retain Coach Dave Joerger for a third season despite a 59-105 record over his first two, according to Aldridge. The Knicks now have a chance to try their luck in the free market with a brand new head coach and try to end their playoff drought. 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.

Hornacek opened up the offense after Jackson's departure, and the Knicks started 16-13.

"Would I like to coach in the National Basketball Association?" Anthony and Porzingis were not a natural pairing and Jackson's biggest moves - signing Joakim Noah and trading for Derrick Rose - were duds.
