Knicks head coach Jeff Hornacek said he isn't sure whether the current roster can work within the Triangle and get the team to the playoffs next season.
"You never know how these things will fit," he said, according to the NY Post. "Maybe a second year is helpful for us. I thought we got off to a decent start this year, then we had little injuries and lost close games and it piled on in confidence, got a little out of control. I don't know. It's something we're going to really look at.''
Hornacek added that his idea of injecting a more modern system to go along with the Triangle wasn't the best, and that he isn't sure which players should remain when the team implements the more classic system.
Of the core players, the Knicks are expected to again explore a trade of Carmelo Anthony, and Derrick Rose will be a free agent.
"If we can think with a fresh start of training camp, going to it right off the bat, if that helps us and Phil (Jackson) and Steve (Mills) think the same guys on the team can have a different outlook on it, they stay the same. If not, they'll look at other guys."
Shaquille O'Neal, who played in the Triangle under Jackson with the Lakers, said earlier this week that the Knicks' failure this season was the players' fault.
Those comments came after Hornacek said the Knicks held on to the ball to much.
The Knicks are 27-43 and on the verge of being eliminated from postseason contention.
