Hornacek’s “doppelganger,” Ron Baker tries to find fit under new coaching staff

“I’m going into training camp confident,” Ron Baker told The Post in his first remarks since Hornacek got canned. “I’ll try my best to be in good shape, compete, do what I’m asked. Obviously, we’re over the roster limits. I don’t control that. I can only control what I can control — coming in every day, ready to work and being positive.”

Baker attempted to put a positive spin on Hornacek’s ouster, but his disappointment could not be hidden. Baker once said Hornacek was his “doppelganger.”

After he got released, [Hornacek] gave me a call a week after,” Baker said. “Jeff being Jeff, he wished me well. Reaching out to me, one thing he said if I ever need anything, he’s there for me. That’s the kind of guy he was every day.”
