The Knicks reached last afternoon their first 5 game losing streak of the season and they are 1-9 in the last 10 games, the single win being at home against the Phoenix Suns, and are getting further away from the playoff race.
A former Laker and student of Phil Jackson, Fisher was acquired in 2014 and singed a $25 million, 5 years deal.
Until future announcements, Kurt Rambis will serve as interim coach.
