Jeff Hornacek RumorsAll NBA Players
Whatever that means is not yet clear to Hornacek. “As we go into next year, we’ll talk about a lot of things, how it would work,” the coach said. “I don’t know if he’s talking specifically at practice or meetings beforehand. He has popped into meetings occasionally. That’s all stuff we haven’t talked about.”
Lamenting a lost opportunity to hash out the Latvian’s concerns, Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek revealed he texted disgruntled forward Kristaps Porzingis recently but hadn’t received a response.
In becoming the first Knicks official to react to Porzingis blowing off his exit meetings after the season, Hornacek said at the NBA Draft Combine he has “no doubt in my mind” Porzingis will be on the roster next season, saying it’s “a long summer” to resolve any issues.
“Again, he decided not to come to the meeting,” Hornacek said. “It would’ve been a great opportunity to talk about what he sees, but we figure it’s a long summer. We’ll end up talking to him, and all that stuff coming into next year will be fine.”
