The Knicks will have a 1pm meeting today to announce the hiring of Donnie Walsh. The latest rumor is that Walsh will report directly to Dolan. Another rumor is that one of Walsh’s terms is that the team more media friendly, a huge departure from the recent era. The Knicks’ current policy is to not allow anyone in the organization be interviewed without a member of the P.R. department present.
It’s unknown what will happen to Isiah Thomas, and you have to wonder what will happen to Steve Mills as well since Walsh isn’t reporting to him. According to at least one report, Mills and Isiah have had a power struggle for some time now. It’s possible that Dolan uses the Walsh hiring to get rid of one or both. Most likely these questions won’t be answered until the season is over, but hopefully there’ll be an answer by the draft.
