Knicks, David Griffin moving toward contract talks on GM opening

The Post reported that Griffin wanted to hire his own scouting staff, while the Knicks' has remained mostly in place for years, even predating Jackson.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Ramona Shelburne reported Saturday that the New York Knicks are progressing toward contract talks with David Griffin.

Griffin has been in NY since Friday's meeting with the Knicks, who are looking to bolster their front office following Phil Jackson's departure as president of basketball operations. This would include the removal of current assistant GM Allan Houston, so Griffin's decision could be related to Mills' influence.

Griffin turned down the opportunity because he and the Knicks couldn't agree on a role, a source said.

Now that the Knicks are Phil Jackson-less, the front office at Madison Square Garden has been looking for ways to do.

Other batsmen like Evin Lewis, Jason Holder, Roston Chase too need to play vital role in the must win match for them. As per latest Pitch report at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium states more clearly sounds like a batting pitch.


Much of the Knicks' front office has survived several unsuccessful regimes, and the organization has been hesitant to make sweeping changes to the group, league sources said.

NY had a chance to begin a fresh start with Griffin, but they chose to stick with Mills, which leaves Griffin without a team. Mills has been the Knicks' acting president since Jackson's departure and signed Hardaway Jr.to a surprising four-year, $71 million offer sheet last week.

In Jackson's three full seasons at the helm, NY lost at least 50 games three times, and it hasn't reached the playoffs since 2012-13.

Griffin spent three seasons with the Cavaliers, making the moves needed to supplement a roster immediately bolstered by the return of LeBron James in the summer of 2014.
