Bookmaker.eu has proclaimed New York Knicks head coach Jeff Hornacek among the next NBA head coaches to be fired with odds that pay close to $55 for every $10 bet.
Despite the Knicks season woes, Hornacek is actually not the favorite to be canned first. That honor belongs to Terry Stotts of the Portland Trailblazers.
Heading into play on Feb. 27, the Knicks sat at 24-35 and four games out of a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
Portland was at 24-34, losing and failing to cover the spread in seven of their last ten games overall.
Here are the full odds:
Terry Stotts (Portland): +400
Mike Budenholzer (Atlanta): +500
Jeff Hornacek (New York): +550
Alvin Gentry (New Orleans): +600
Frank Vogel (Orlando): +600
Dwane Casey (Toronto): +650
Kenny Atkinson (Brooklyn): +700
Steve Clifford (Charlotte): +700
Fred Hoiberg (Chicago): +700
