The person spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because the team had yet to announce the move.

Yahoo Sports first reported the news.

New York has lost six in a row for the second time this season and is in danger of missing the playoffs. Loaded with talent, the Knicks have fallen into a tie for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.


There were reports D’Antoni was not getting along with Carmelo Anthony, though the All-Star forward said Wednesday he supported the coach “100 percent.”

D’Antoni put the Knicks through a morning workout Wednesday and had been preparing to coach them against the Portland Trail Blazers. Instead, Mike Woodson is expected to handle that role.
