New Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek plans to run portions of the triangle offense while adding elements of the up-tempo style he employed while with the Phoenix Suns.
“It will be a part of our offense. It’s something that has worked; it has won championships,” Hornacek said at his introductory news conference Friday afternoon at the Knicks’ training facility. “You can space the court [with the triangle] and run a lot of the different things that I did in Phoenix. So there will be aspects of the triangle.”
