Report: Several members of Knicks expect Steve Mills to be fired at end of season unless things get better

Steve Mills

Several members of the New York Knicks expect president Steve Mills to be fired at the end of the season unless things get better during the year, according to Ian Begley of SNY.

The Knicks fired head coach David Fizdale last week. If Mills is fired, New York is said to have heavy interest in Toronto Raptors president Masai Ujiri.

Several members of the organization said this week that they fully expect Mills will be replaced as team president at the end of the season — if not sooner — unless the club somehow turns things around.

A source said last week that Mills and Perry are under significant pressure following the firing of head coach David Fizdale.

The Athletic has reported that Mills will be reassigned or outright fired after the season. But sources say the situation remains fluid given the remote possibility of a turnaround from the Knicks. Mills has multiple years left on his deal, as does Perry. There’s also the possibility that MSG decision makers — including Dolan — could change their mind on Knicks leadership.

The Knicks are 4-20 on the season. They have the worst record in the NBA, just like last season.

Mills was appointed as the Knicks’ interim GM when Phil Jackson was fired back in June of 2017. He became president after hiring Scott Perry away from the Sacramento Kings.
