Knicks fire coach Derek Fisher

New York (AP) - The New York Knicks fired head coach Derek Fisher on Monday, just days before the NBA All-Star break.

Fisher had a 40-96 record in his second season with the Knicks. New York currently is 23-31 and out of the Eastern Conference playoff picture. The Knicks promoted Kurt Rambis to interim coach.

Knicks president Phil Jackson hired Fisher as his first coach as part of his franchise overhaul after Fisher retired from playing in 2014. Fisher played for Jackson with the Los Angeles Lakers. New York endured a franchise-worst 17-65 record with Fisher last season. Even with a relatively healthy Carmelo Anthony and prized rookie Porzingis, the Knicks have lost nine of their last 10 games, including a 101-96 loss to the visiting Denver Nuggets on Sunday.
