New York Knicks Expected to Fire Phil Jackson

Chicago IL USA- The New York Knicks' Derrick Rose is congratulated by fans after the Knicks' 117-104 victory against the Chicago Bulls at the United Center in Chicago on Friday Nov. 4 2016

Sources tell ESPN that recent conversations between Jackson and Knicks owner James Dolan accelerated his departure, after Jackson made it clear he had no intention to work beyond the end of his contract. ESPN reports NY and Jackson will announce they're parting ways Wednesday morning.

The Knicks never made it to the playoffs in three seasons under Jackson, who has been vocal about moving star Carmelo Anthony, who has two years and almost $55 million remaining in his contract. His insistence on running the triangle offense has alienated players and turned off potential free agents, and Jackson has struggled to connect with the two head coaches that he's hired on the job, Derek Fisher and current coach Jeff Hornacek.

Phil Jackson and the New York Knicks are expected to part company Wednesday morning, ending a relationship that began with great hope for a downtrodden franchise a little more than three years ago. The team was unable to make a trade, and NY selected French guard Frank Ntilikina with the eighth overall selection.

What will Monaco sensation Thomas Lemar bring to Arsenal?
Losing him to rivals Arsenal would be a big blow, especially as the Gunners are unable to offer Champions League football. Also, Lemar was only behind Falcao, Valere Germain and Mbappe for the most number of shots per game.

Reports also surfaced that Jackson was taking offers for Porzingis as the team attempted to move up in the National Basketball Association draft. We've got young players who are on their move up.

Despite the latest reports, Begley and Shelburne also noted Dolan said he planned on honoring Jackson's five-year contract during a radio interview in February.
