Knicks brass releases statement on fired coaches Hornacek, Rambis

The Knicks cut ties with head coach Jeff Hornacek and Kurt Rambis early Thursday morning shortly after the team’s win in its regular-season finale over the Cavaliers.

After the firings were announced, team president Steve Mills and GM Scott Perry released a joint statement as the Knicks embarks on another search for a new coach.

On Hornacek:

“Jeff is a true professional who has worked tirelessly for this organization the last two years. We sincerely appreciate the efforts and considerable contributions to the team and wish him well in his future endeavors.”

“Kurt has been a big part of the Knicks over these last four seasons, as both an associate head coach and interim head coach. We thank him for his dedication to New York and wish him the best moving forward.”

Before Wednesday’s game, Hornacek made a pitch to return for the final year of his three-year contract, expressing belief that the foundation he helped build will soon “blossom.”

Knicks brass evidently did not agree, as Hornacek, who was hired by Mills and Phil Jackson in the summer of 2016, helmed the team to his second straight disappointing season.
