The New York Knicks won’t be making a head coaching change this season as the team will reportedly retain head coach Jeff Hornacek.

Knicks general manager Scott Perry recently commented about Hornacek’s future with the team, according to the New York Post’s Marc Berman.

“No, we’re not looking to make any changes… We’re evaluating the entire season. Jeff and his group are working really hard with this basketball team and doing the very best they can and obviously this is an adversity for them to deal with KP being out, but I’m confident that they’ll be able to do a good job of keeping this team playing hard and playing together.’’

The Knicks are likely to target a higher profile head coach in the offseason with Mark Jackson topping the list of potential candidates who could fit nicely into the Knicks’ future plans.

Chicago Bulls rookie Wendell Carter Jr. is dedicated to helping the franchise return a winning culture, and says that he is ready to put the team on his shoulders to accomplish the feat of rebuilding a winning culture.

“I’m always up for a challenge,” Carter Jr said, during an interview with Jon Greenberg of The Athletic. “I’m not afraid to fail. If I’m going to fail, I’m going to do it hard. I’m going to go hard as I can in failing. So I feel like that can be appreciated from all the coaches. I’m a hard worker, so I feel like that’s going to translate to the responsibility side of doing whatever we have to do. Put it on my shoulders and I’m going to make it happen.”

“We’re going to bring back the winning culture to Chicago,” he said. “If it’s not make the playoffs and win the championship in the first year, I guarantee it’s going to be a progressive step each year. I can promise that to all Bulls fans. I’ll take that on my shoulders.”

Thought I got a lot of really, really good looks on the offensive end. On the defensive end, just our switches and closing out, just my attention to detail wasn’t there.

“I told Ty after the game, I said that’s on me and I apologize. We all have to be better and I think we know it.”
