New York Teams

David Schoenfield ESPN Senior Writer 

Sad news about former Mets, Cubs and Astros pitcher Anthony Young passing away at 51. He's remembered for losing a record 27 consecutive decisions -- let's see that get broken -- but was a better pitcher than his W-L record indicates. His career adjusted ERA was 100 -- exactly league average.

Jeff Hornacek issued a statement after summer league practice on the firing of Phil Jackson. He did not answer questions on the topic. Here was Hornacek's statement: "It's always an interesting time when stuff like that happens. I just want to thank Phil for giving me the opportunity here in New York. I worked with Steve all year long. We had a great working relationship and talking about things. We'll continue to do that. I wish Phil the best from this point on. It's a tough day for us, but our focus is to get this team better, continue to build our young players and figure out a way to win. We have a lot of time before the regular season to figure that out."

If Masai Ujiri is the New York Knicks' top candidate to replace Phil Jackson, New York would likely have to include some sort of picks package to Toronto seeing as Ujiri is under contract with the Raptors for several more seasons. One league source suggested that Ujiri could have an out clause in his contract that specifically mentions the Knicks job, but those clauses are more common in coaches' contracts than executives'. With that said, is Ujiri such a strong target that giving up future assets to acquire him is more desirable than going after someone like David Griffin who is on the market and has long coveted a big job like the Knicks?

League sources say the interest in Teague is mutual. The Knicks, under Mills, had talked to the Hawks about trading for Teague two years ago.
