New York Knicks: 5 goals for the 2018 offseason

The New York Knicks fired head coach Jeff Hornacek late Wednesday night after the 2017-18 regular season had officially come to a close.

"I gave him his first job in Atlanta, " Woodson mused about hiring Fizdale in 2004 - though Fizdale worked as a Warriors assistant under Eric Musselman the prior season.

"I don't want to hide the fact I'd love to be back", Woodson told Marc Berman of the New York Post.

"That's [management's] job. They're going to do their part and I'm going to do my part". At the end of the day, you want to come to NY, based on my body of work there. I'm sure the front office, they will make the right decisions and build something that can go a long way.

The news of KP's injury sent shockwaves not only through NY but throughout the basketball world, as one of the league's brightest young stars would be forced to make a lengthy and tedious recovery - one that doesn't always guarantee a successful return.

The Knicks clearly have a lot of options for their new head coach, so it'll be interesting to see who they end up choosing in the next week or two.

Fisher replaced Woodson in 2014-15 and flopped.

"Jeff is a true professional who has worked tirelessly for this organization the last two seasons", Knicks President Steve Mills and General Manager Scott Perry said in a statement.

Woodson joined Rivers in Los Angeles and the Clippers were title contenders until just falling short of the playoffs this month. Fizdale won the National Basketball Association championship twice while an assistant coach at the Miami Heat, in 2012 and 2013.

"I would be insane not to, " said Woodson, who served six seasons in Atlanta.
