Is Jeff Hornacek the Right Hire for the New York Knicks?

The New York Knicks have ended its head coaching search with the reported hire of former Phoenix Suns head coach Jeff Hornacek. This is a mildly surprising hire by Phil Jackson as he is hiring a coach who is not a prime candidate to run his triangle offense. Hornacek is an intriguing hire by the Knicks as his Suns teams declined in the win category each of the last three seasons...

Carmelo had no input in Knicks' coaching search

If keeping Carmelo Anthony happy was a reason behind the Knicks’ hiring of Jeff Hornacek as coach, it seems to be working.
