The New York Knicks have placed Kurt Rambis in charge of their defense following their 2-4 start to the season.

The Knicks rank last in the NBA in defensive efficiency at 114.5 points per 100 possessions.

Rambis finished last season as interim head coach of the Knicks following the dismissal of Derek Fisher.

Jeff Hornacek was hired by the Knicks as head coach in the offseason.
