The New York Knicks have fired Head Coach David Fizdale and Assistant Coach Keith Smart, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

The Knicks have compiled an NBA-worst 4-18 record this season after missing out on high-profile free agents Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving over the summer. Fizdale’s final tally as head coach in New York was 21-83. The Trail Blazers face the Knicks next Tuesday, December 10th.
