Knicks expected to part ways with Phil Jackson: Sources

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (KWWL) -

The New York Knicks are expected to part ways with team president Phil Jackson, according to multiple sources with ESPN.  Jackson has been with the team for the last three seasons, in which the Knicks have a disappointing 80-166 record.

Many have been calling for the organization to fire Jackson for the last year.  He publicly called out Carmelo Anthony, saying he may not fit into the team's plans.  There were also rumors of Jackson potentially trading the team's star forward Kristaps Porzingis.

An official announcement on Jackson's firing is expected later Wednesday.
