BREAKING: Knicks Fire Mike Woodson, Entire Coaching Staff

Image

The Knicks announced Monday that they have fired head coach Mike Woodson and his entire staff. This includes Herb Williams and Jim Todd. It is Phil Jackson’s first major move as the Knicks’ President. Here’s what Jackson had to say:

“I have a tremendous amount of respect for Mike Woodson and his entire staff. The coaches and players on this team had an extremely difficult 2013-14 season, and blame should not be put on one individual. But the time has come for change throughout the franchise as we start the journey to assess and build this team for next season and beyond. Everyone in this franchise owes a great deal of gratitude to what Mike and his staff have done. We wish him the best.”

 

We knew this was coming, guys. At least, we knew Mike was on his way out. I wasn’t so sure about the rest of the staff but… time to move on.

Melo Speaks About His Future and The Future of The Team

Speaking Friday to the media gathered in New Orleans for All-Star Weekend, Carmelo Anthony basically said the following.

 

  • His first choice is to remain in New York for the rest of his career.
  • He is willing to take less money to help the Knicks with the cap going forward, but only if he likes the plans they set out in front of him.
  • He will be meeting with the Knicks’ Front Office soon to discuss roster plans going forward.
  • Mike Woodson will be at practice Monday in Memphis.
  • He knows he will not be traded before Thursday’s Trade Deadline.

 

Given that Melo seemingly calls a lot of the shots, this is a very telling series of statements.
