The New York Knicks have fired coach Derek Fisher after a five-game losing streak left the team 1-9 in its last 10 games.

ESPN's Ramona Shelburne and Ian Begley first reported the firing.

The Knicks are 23-31 this season after going 17-65 in Fisher's first season. New York's current losing skid contributed to the timing of the move, but the team was already convinced Fisher was not transitioning from the role of player to coach effectively, sources told ESPN's Brian Windhorst.

Fisher was hired by team president Phil Jackson to rectify the struggling New York franchise. Fisher and Jackson have a history together dating back to when Jackson coached the Lakers, and Fisher was a point guard on the team that won five championships.

Fisher, who had no previous head coaching experience, took over for Mike Woodson, who went 109-79 in parts of three seasons in New York. Woodson, however, won only one playoff series. The Knicks currently sit 12th in the Eastern Conference.

Fisher thanked Jackson, Madison Square Garden Chairman James Dolan, along with his players and staff. "This is a very talented team with strong character and I am confident they will succeed," Fisher said in a statement. "Obviously, I'm disappointed, but have learned an immense amount from this experience and hope to grow from it."

Assistant Kurt Rambis will now serve as interim coach. Rambis played on four Lakers title teams and was a coach or executive for four others. He coached the Timberwolves to a 56-145 mark from 2009-11.

Two other former Jackson players, Brian Shaw and Luke Walton, are candidates to the full-time job, sources told ESPN. Shaw coached parts of two seasons in Denver, while Walton led the defending champion Golden State Warriors to a record start this season, filling in for injured coach Steve Kerr. Sources tell Shelburne, though, that Walton is determined to take his time before accepting a head coaching position. Much like Kerr two summers ago, Walton wants to make sure he's setting himself up for success.

The Knicks upgraded their roster during the summer with the drafting of Kristaps Porzingis and the signing of veterans Arron Afflalo and Robin Lopez. They had the look of a playoff team most of the season but are stumbling into the All-Star break, and fans loudly booed when they fell behind by 19 points Sunday during a 101-96 loss to the Denver Nuggets.

Fisher accepted some of the blame for the team's recent slow starts after the game, though All-Star forward Carmelo Anthony said that was the responsibility of the players.

The Knicks haven't won a title since the 1972-73 season.

We need a point guard, not a struggling guard... especially not Ben

and the fact of the evening. Melo is in demand by several teams, Melo does not want to leave and Phil wants to shut all the critics up and win WITH Melo.


another possible target is Lance Stephenson who will become available if the Orlando trade him since they will buy out his contract

The Clippers are one of the teams who want Melo and are currently trying to get NY involved in their trade with Orlando that will give them Melo and Griffin (keep him away from here) coming here. Oladipo is said to not be up for grabs so why even bother

with that being, it's possible Melo does get traded

as far as Teague goes, Splitter being injured kinda helps us in a way since we can offer them O'Quinn or Seraphin to fill that need with Calderon being the main dude we move out

The New York Knicks have been in talks with Tony Wroten.

When the current 10-day contract of Jimmer Fredette expires, the Knicks could instead sign Wroten.

Wroten was waived by the Philadelphia 76ers on Dec. 24th.

The Knicks interviewed Wroten last weekend in New York.

Ray McCallum is also a free agent candidate to replace Fredette. McCallum was recently released by the San Antonio Spurs.

Tony Wroten 3 year deal was smart, creates competition in that position to see who staying and going and it's not a guarantee after the season

Early is back, sent down to the D-League to begin work
