James Dolan reportedly tabbing Steve Mills for Knicks president post

The New York Knicks may have already found their replacement for Phil Jackson.

After weeks of searching for the next person to run their daily operations, the team did not need to look far as it has been reported by Marc Berman of the New York Post that owner James Dolan is apparently tabbing their current general manager, Steve Mills, to take over the reins of the Knicks.

“According to sources debriefed on their front-office search, owner James Dolan is moving forward with a plan that has Steve Mills remaining as the permanent president. No negotiations have taken place yet between the Knicks and Mills.”

Although the report clearly states that no talks have been made between both parties, their lack of urgency to replace Jackson may be related to them just waiting for the right time to negotiate with Mills, for him to take on the job vacancy. Just last week, rumors surfaced that the 57-year-old could be making a move to be named president, and using his good relationship with Dolan to boost his chances of getting the post.

It’s still unclear if the speculations are true or not, but if Mills will indeed be named the team’s president of basketball operations, he will immediately have to make a lot of big decisions that could reveal which direction the Knicks are headed to. They are also expected to interview a few candidates for the general manager post that Mills will vacate.
