We wondered earlier who would go once word surfaced that Carmelo Anthony either wanted to be traded or head coach Mike D’Antoni fired.
Well, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, Mike D’Antoni has chosen to be the one to go.
Mike D’Antoni has resigned as coach of the New York Knicks, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
D’Antoni and Knicks owner James Dolan agreed on Wednesday to end his three-plus-years run as Knicks coach, a source said. “It was a mutual decision to no longer coach the Knicks … conflicting visions of the club’s future,” the source said.
D’Antoni had clashed with Carmelo Anthony after the trade brought the All-Star forward to the Knicks a year ago, and he could never get the Anthony to buy into his system.
So it looks like Carmelo won this battle. But something tells us the changes are far from over.
