Knicks fire team President Steve Mills

Knicks fire team President Steve Mills

The Knicks have played better under interim coach Mike Miller and won their last two games, but the organization remains one of the league's laughingstocks.

"We thank Steve for his many years of service to our organisation and look forward to continuing our relationship with him as part of our board".

The Knicks' statement added: "It is anticipated that Steve Mills will be nominated to the board of the standalone sports company, following the completion of the proposed spin-off [of] the entertainment business, pending all necessary approvals, including by the MSG board".

The Knicks are 15-36 this season, the third-worst record in the Eastern Conference.

Since then, he has overseen the acquisition of superstar LeBron James through free agency as well as the blockbuster trade for Anthony Davis last summer. Recent draft picks, like Kevin Knox, Frank Ntilikina and Mitchell Robinson, haven't yet shown that they can have long careers in the National Basketball Association. The report also noted several people had advised Ujiri against leaving the Raptors for the Knicks. The decision was shocking, not just with its timing but that it happened at all.

The Knicks are owned by the Dolan-led Madison Square Garden Company (MSG), the organisation behind the eponymous midtown NY arena. The case was settled the next year for $11.5 million.

Mills has been the Knicks' president since July 2017 and previously worked as their executive vice president since 2013.

Whoever replaces Mills has another key offseason approaching.

The NBA completely denied that commissioner Adam Silver is pushing Toronto Raptors president Masai Ujiri to go to the New York Knicks, per Marc Stein of The New York Post.

NY should begin their search for a new president shortly after letting go of Mills, and Ujiri could be the top candidate for the job.
