Knicks Hire Assistant Coach Dave Hopla
The Knicks have hired shooting coach Dave Hopla as an assistant.
According to a league source, Hopla will work specifically in player development and conduct individual drills for the Knicks, similar to the role that former assistant Kenny Atkinson served last season.
Hopla has worked with the Wizards and Raptors as a shooting consultant.
As a team, the Knick shot 44 percent from the field last season, the 18th highest percentage in the NBA. They also knocked down 33.6 percent of their 3-point attempts, ranking 21st in the league.
