Good signing. Hopefully they don't expect a damn thing from that team (and put him on the hot seat) for a few years though. They're at a rock bottom spot.

Assistant coach under Spo for the big 3 Heat teams and 2 championship runs, players loved him.

Can't expect anything for the first few seasons because of how poorly the Knicks are assembled right now, but I think he can get them competitive in due time

KNicks are not fsr off being a decent team. They need to hit on this pick and tank next year. KP needs to come back 100% and they’ll be headed in the right direction

Take your time in this rebuild, don't ever blame the coach and you'll breed a true program

Does it really matter who coaches a terrible team?

Knicks will probably suck for a few good years. I hope they let Fizdale stay and do his thing and see what it can become.

Now all he needs is a team to coach and a front office to build it and fans to support him and the team.

The knicks front office needs to do everything in their power to let the program advance and not to knickian things and rush it... This is a fantastic hire but if they expect him to come in and win over the next 3 years that will cut out his knees from under him... Tank next year... hit on this upcoming pick and figure the porz thing out while letting him rest... within 2 or 3 seasons they could easily be a top 6 team in the East.

Yes. Brett brown is a testament to that, you just have to find pleasure in the mundane aspects of rooster construction in today's nba

Of just find a way to make players buy into what you are doing through competition within the team and things like that.

Perry and Mills pretty much said we’re going to suck next season and maybe the season after that. But I expect them to get out the way and let the man coach. KP keep out next season, tank hard and hopefully secure a top 3 pick while having cap space in 2019. And since the 2019 draft might be the worst ever, tried to trade that 1st for a star play (Kawhi possibly)

If 2019 might be the worst draft ever, why would they take your pick for Kawhi?

Good hire for the Knicks. Fiz is solid.

This is a good move for the Knicks. They will remain in the lottery for a few years still, projected to get the #9 pick this year, but they got a good coach. If the organization stays out of his way New York will be a well coached team and Porzingis will be an MVP candidate in a few years.

Their next concern is the NBA draft. They need to not focus on drafting for need, but rather grab the best player available when it's their turn to pick. If they can get a good player in this draft and the next, they could possibly attract a star to join the team in 2019 if they can free up the cap space. Between Porzingis and Fizdale, the Knicks finally have a future.

Look what Boston is doing to Philly right now without Irving, Hayward and Brown (until last night). You want to tell me certain coaches don't get more out of their players ?

Because maybe the Spurs don’t view it the same

I mean, your strategy appears to be to rely on the Spurs being suckers. The SPURS.

Knicks hope Fizz's connection with LeBron will lure him into the Knicks. Not even LeBron's wife could convince him that he should go to the Knicks. Knicks signed a bunch of trash players to lucrative contracts. Noah is robbing them blind. This dude is seriously incredibly lucky to make $18 million and just sit on the bench. What a life.

There were reports that wanted Melo BADLY and was willing to package a respectable offer, so yeah the SPURS
