New York Knicks fire team president Steve Mills

Share

If hired, Rose will replace Steve Mills, who was sacked on Tuesday after a turbulent two-and-a-half year stint in the role of president. Sources claim that NY Knicks wants Toronto Raptors Masai Ujiri. 'I am not selling, but I am determined to find the right leader of the Knicks who will ensure the long-term success of the team, just as we did with the hiring of Rangers President John Davidson'.

As an agent, Rose has represented the likes of LeBron James, Allen Iverson, Carmelo Anthony and Joel Embiid.

General manager Scott Perry will oversee the basketball operations in the interim, the team said.

Not to mention, there are reports that the Knicks could be interested in following the models set by the Golden State Warriors or Los Angeles Lakers where a player agent takes over.

The 60-year-old Mills was hired as Knicks president in 2017, but had previous stints as an executive for the club dating back to 1999, when James Dolan took over as controlling owner.

Mills was the Knicks' general manager from 2013-17 before being elevated to president after Jackson's departure.

NY now sports a 15-36 record, good for 13th in the Eastern Conference and the fourth-worse win percentage league-wide.

"It has been a great honor to represent the Knicks", Mills said in a statement. Since rejoining the Knicks in 2013, the franchise has posted a 178-365 record, the worst in the National Basketball Association.

Knicks fans have grown increasingly frustrated with Dolan in recent weeks. Mills lasted 2 1/2 years as team president, but in that time, the Knicks were spurned by every A-list free agent despite playing in the league's biggest market.

Mills' departure comes less than two months after the Knicks fired coach David Fizdale and an assistant, Keith Smart.
