The Knicks have removed the “interim” tag from Glen Grunwald (the man who brought us Tyson Chandler, Jeremy Lin, JR Smith, Steve Novak and Baron Davis). He has been officially named an Executive Vice President and General Manager of the Knicks.
This being decided before the season is over has to be good news for Mike Woodson, as it seems like James Dolan is generally pleased with the Knicks. Grunwald, though, clearly had a lot more security than Woodson.
Dolan on Grunwald, “Glen has done a terrific job this season. He is an intelligent, seasoned executive and we look forward to him continuing in the role of general manager for many years to come.”
Grunwald on the news, “It has been a great honor to be a part of this storied franchise for the past six seasons. I would like to thank Mr. Dolan for this opportunity and look forward to building on our commitment to give our fans a team that they can be proud of today, and in the future.”
Congrats to Grunwald. A well deserved promotion!
