The New York Knicks have fired head coach David Fizdale after 22 games this season, according to ESPN.

The team also fired assistant coach Keith Smart, the report also said, citing an NBA source.

Assistant coach Mike Miller is a “strong possibility” to serve as interim coach, league sources told ESPN, adding that assistant coach Pat Sullivan may be in the running as well.

Fizdale’s reported departure comes one day after the Knicks fell to the Denver Nuggets 129-92 Thursday night, dropping the team to 4-18 this season. According to current NBA standings, the Knicks have the worst record in the league’s Eastern Conference.

The Knicks have struggled as a team in recent years. The Knicks also ranked at the bottom of the Eastern Conference in the 2018-2019 regular season, going 17-65. In the 2017-18 regular season, the team went 29-53.

The Knicks are slated to face the 14-7 Indiana Pacers this Saturday.
