One of the things that makes Horford so deadly is that he can initiate a play from any situation. He can serve asa . point forward when needed and he can grab a rebound and run the fast break. When he was under Donovan at Florida, that was the skill that made the biggest difference. “Like, I let him start the break all the time in college, him and Noah, I let those guys push the ball, and it was great for us. He’s a great passer. He’s a great, great player because he does all the intangible things. There may be guys that jump higher. There may be guys that have better post moves. There may be guys that shoot the ball better. But as it relates to winning, like, he impacts winning at the highest of levels in my opinion.”
Hornacek was asked about Joakim Noah’s status with the Knicks and how the matter will resolve itself: “I’m not sure,” he said. “In the summer, Scott [Perry, the general manager] and Steve [Mills, the team president] will be talking with him. I guess that’s how it will get resolved.” Noah has been away from the Knicks since getting into a heated exchange with Hornacek in January and won’t be back this season. If the Knicks can’t trade him, they’ll likely stretch his contract and waive him on Sept. 1 to minimize how much they have to pay him in 2019, when they hope to be spenders in free agency.
