Portland’s Josh Longstaff out as Knicks assistant
He won't return next season despite his popularity with the team's young players.

...The fact that Longstaff won’t return could be Jackson’s way of sending a message to Porzingis about who’s in charge. Jackson wouldn’t comment on Porzingis’ decision not to attend his end-of-season meeting when asked about it 10 days ago. Either way, Porzingis likely won’t be happy that Longstaff isn’t returning.

Longstaff went to Latvia last summer to work with Porzingis and attend his camp. He was the only Knicks coach there.

A holdover from Derek Fisher’s staff, Longstaff was popular in the locker room and respected by the players. Head coach Jeff Hornacek called Longstaff “sort of the leader of our player development.”
