David Fizdale Rumors

Fizdale was a guest on “The Jump” on Monday afternoon and insisted, despite the 17-65 record in his first year as coach of the team that has struggled for the better part of two decades, the Knicks have something to draw the top players to join in. “[We’re having] a lot of conversations, a lot of angles that we’re trying to make sure that we show guys when they come in,” Fizdale said.”I think we’ve got a lot of positive things to show.”
David Fizdale: “Scott Perry and Steve Mills have done a heck of a job laying this thing out. We’ve got the most cap space. We have seven picks over five years, which means whoever we do get, we can continue to build around them, and I think that’s a great position to be in. We did all that in a course of a year and we laid down our culture, so I’m really excited about where we’re at.”
Though Fizdale seemed to create a connection to his players, it didn’t translate to victories with his in-game coaching. Nevertheless, Mills praised Fizdale for sticking to development and not veering to protect his record. “We were really satisfied with his first year,’’ Mills said. “A big part of what we were hiring him to do was connect with our players, develop accountability, make sure they were getting better, establish an identity of working. He did a really good job of it.
