New Knicks head coach Jeff Hornacek said that team president Phil Jackson has been “hands off” and “helpful” during the preseason as Hornacek installs a new offense in New York. Hornacek’s new approach employs less of the triangle offense, which Jackson used to win 11 NBA titles as a head coach.

“Phil’s been great. He’s not trying to take over and make us do anything. He’s given us the leeway,” Hornacek said after practice Sunday. “There are some things that we do that aren’t the triangle stuff [such as] our early [offense]. Quite honestly, we thought he would say, ‘Let’s not do that.’ Or, ‘Let’s not do that option.’ But he hasn’t said that at all.”
