Jeff Hornacek wants to return to the New York Knicks to see out the final year of his contract and plans to hold taks over his future on Thursday.

Head coach Hornacek has one year to go on his three-year deal and is eager to hold discussions with players and executives during the team's exit meetings.

"That's why you sign contracts. I have one more year," Hornacek told the New York Daily News. "We'd love to continue with these guys and get some of the guys healthy and get back at it and continue that process.

"We didn't think it was going to be a one-year turnaround. That's our thoughts. That's what we'll continue to look at."

With one game left in the season, Hornacek has a 59-104 record in his first two years in New York. However, he said he wants to be with the team as it continues to rebuild and train the young players.

"We started it, and we'd like to continue it," Hornacek said. "It's very satisfying for coaches to take a team and build it and grow it. You can look around the league at some of the teams that are now some of the better teams in the league.

"They went through those same type of things. ... Now all of a sudden [they] have their teams four or five years later and maybe even home-court advantage for the playoffs.

"So sometimes people are wanting things to happen right away. But sometimes there's patience. That's what we're looking for."
