Donnie Walsh

  1. Reggie Miller says he would consider Pacers front office job

    Sep 11, 2012, 11:32 AM EDT

    Basketball Hall of Fame Enshrinement Ceremony

    I think I can speak for all Pacers fans who have listened to Reggie Miller analyze a basketball game on television when they say, “NOOOOOOO” to this idea. But it is still out there. While speaking with Mike Wells of the Indy Star last weekend at the Hall of Fame (where Miller was inducted), the…

  2. As expected, Morway out, Pritchard to be in as Pacers GM

    pacerslogo

    What was long rumored and expected is now official. David Morway has resigned as the general manager of the Indiana Pacers and is leaving the organization, the team announced Tuesday. This is one of those “resign or we will can you” resignations, just so we’re clear. This clears the way for Kevin Pritchard, the former…

  3. You can go home again: Donnie Walsh hired by Pacers

    Jun 26, 2012, 2:21 AM EDT

    Donnie Walsh

    Donnie Walsh was the long-time CEO of the Indiana Pacers who took a few years off to bail the New York Knicks out of their Isiah Thomas hole. They rewarded him for that by shoving him aside (over differences about the Carmelo Anthony deal), stripping him of his power and making him a consultant. Now,…

  4. Report: Magic to make decision on new GM by end of week

    May 29, 2012, 2:55 PM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    First comes the new general manager. Then comes the decision on Dwight Howard. The first part of that decision could come by the end of the week, reports magicbasketballonline.com. A source close to the decision making process within the Orlando Magic organization has informed me that the team is close, and likely to name their…

  5. How about a real Orlando GM target: Lakers’ Mitch Kupchak

    May 24, 2012, 6:13 PM EDT

    Mitch Kupchak

    We all had our laugh, time to get serious about the Orlando Magic general manager search. How about this for a start, from Ken Berger at CBSSports.com — Mitch Kupchak of the Lakers. So while there have been no public indications that Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak will be available or wants to leave Los Angeles,…

  6. Donnie Walsh thinks Knicks have the core of a title team

    Donnie Walsh

    The last time the New York Knicks were NBA champions, George Steinbrenner had just purchased the Yankees for $10 million, the World Trade Center towers opened in New York and Elvis Presley was doing a live concert from Hawaii. So it’s been a while. But former GM and now team consultant — meaning they paid…

  7. Knicks coach Mike D’Antoni admits his seat is hot

    Aug 30, 2011, 11:04 AM EDT

    Mike D'Antoni

    Mike Woodson hadn’t even been hired as the Knicks lead assistant coach — which became official Monday — the speculation had started. Coach Mike D’Antoni’s job is in serious danger. When Donnie Walsh was pushed out the door, the ground under D’Antoni’s feet started to shift. Woodson, the former Hawks head coach, gives the Knicks…

  8. Report: Pacers owner wants Reggie Miller to replace Bird

    Aug 18, 2011, 11:30 AM EDT

    reggie-miller

    After listening to Reggie Miller broadcast NBA games, would you hire him to be your team’s general manager? I wouldn’t even let him run my fantasy team, but if a GM gig gets him out of the broadcast booth I am fully supportive of it. Larry Bird is going to step down at the end…

  9. Chris Mullin thinks Donnie Walsh will work again

    Aug 16, 2011, 12:12 PM EDT

    Donnie Walsh

    Donnie Walsh is currently a consultant for the Knicks. Which essentially means he is being paid to go away. That despite getting the team back to the playoffs and brining in stars while cutting the payroll in half. Most places that gets you a raise and job security, with the Knicks it gets you kicked…

  10. Mullin could have gone into Hall and been Knicks GM

    Aug 11, 2011, 9:20 AM EDT

    Chris Mullin

    As Chris Mullin heads into the Hall of Fame telling cool stories about him and Larry Bird, there is a tinge of regret in New York. When Mullin was pushed out the door as general manager of the Golden State Warriors — so Don Nelson’s cabal could have more power — there were other teams…

  11. Don’t expect any more Knicks front office shakeups

    After letting Donnie Walsh go — because all he did is return the team to the playoffs while slashing the payroll in half, why would you want to keep him around? — the question became who was on dock? What would owner James Dolan do next to screw up the stability of the franchise? Turns…

  12. After all that, the Knicks still dodged the luxury tax

    Jul 23, 2011, 9:28 AM EDT

    Donnie Walsh

    The Knicks went from being a money-burning loser to a cost-effective playoff team with two superstars in just a few years under Donnie Walsh. How cost effective? They brought in a second superstar last season in Carmelo Anthony after paying through the nose for Amar’e Stoudemire, and they still dodged the luxury tax. From the…

  13. Carmelo Anthony surprised by Walsh’s departure

    Jun 7, 2011, 1:06 PM EDT

    Boston Celtics v New York Knicks - Game Three

    How unexpected was the exit of Donnie Walsh from the power structure of the Knicks? It caught Carmelo Anthony off guard, he told Newsday. The Knicks forward said Monday that he was getting treatment at the Knicks ‘ practice facility Friday when he heard that Walsh will be ending his tenure as team president. “It…

  14. Ford: Walsh still calling shots for Knicks’ 2011 draft

    Jun 6, 2011, 6:16 PM EDT

    Donnie Walsh

    According to ESPN.com’s Chad Ford, former Knicks general manager Donnie Walsh will still be “calling the shots” for the Knicks in the 2011 NBA draft.  While it’s a bit of an awkward situation, the Knicks seem to trust Walsh, whose replacement may come from within the organization, in this situation. According to Ford, the Knicks,…

  15. Don’t be surprised if Knicks stay in house for new GM

    Jun 6, 2011, 4:13 PM EDT

    Isiah Thomas will not be the next president and general manager of the New York Knicks. That is very different than saying he will not have influence, but he will not have the job and the title and the desk. Just ask him. Who will? Probably a few of the guys already in the building…

  16. Mike D’Antoni isn’t concerned about his job security

    Jun 5, 2011, 7:00 PM EDT

    Mike D'Antoni

    With Donnie Walsh out in New York, immediately the questions turned towards the future of Mike D’Antoni. Yes, D’Antoni was part of the Knicks’ resurgence. Yes, D’Antoni was instrumental in their playoff run. And yes, he has several years left on his contract. But this is the Knicks we’re talking about and if anything, they’re…

  17. Isiah Thomas says he does not want to be Knicks president

    Jun 3, 2011, 8:34 PM EDT

    Isaih Thomas Introduced as New Knicks GM

    It doesn’t work like this. So don’t believe it. But we will first report the official news — Isiah Thomas told ESPN multiple times he does not want to be president of the New York Knicks in the wake of Donnie Walsh being pushed out of the job. “I have no desire to return as…

  18. Donnie Walsh out as Knicks president in shocker

    Jun 3, 2011, 4:00 PM EDT

    Donnie Walsh

    UPDATE 4:16 pm: According to Howard Beck at the New York Times, another sticking point of negotiations was Dolan’s insistence that Walsh take a 40 percent paycut, from $5 million down to $3 million. Yes, it’s still a boatload of money, but what if your boss asked you to take a 40 percent paycut? It’s…

  19. Is Mike D’Antoni’s job now in danger in New York?

    Jun 3, 2011, 3:32 PM EDT

    Mike D'Antoni, Toney Douglas

    Donnie Walsh, the consummate professional who never speaks ill of ownership in public, said all the right things in his phone conference call Friday about him leaving as president of the Knicks. Well, the right things if you’re Knicks owner James Dolan. Nobody bought a word of it, but Walsh went through the motions, as…

  20. Report: Knicks, Donnie Walsh to finally get deal done

    May 30, 2011, 10:16 AM EDT

    Donnie Walsh

    Remember all the drama about whether Donnie Walsh was going to have the extension on his contract picked up or be let go by the Knicks? Then it turned out he didn’t have the extension picked up because they planned to give him a new deal instead? Except, he’s been on the job without a…

  21. Report: Knicks owner promises he won’t rehire Isiah Thomas

    May 5, 2011, 1:36 PM EDT

    Isaih Thomas Introduced as New Knicks GM

    If at one time a statement can be no-brainer true and completely moot, this next sentence is it: Knicks owner James Dolan has promised team president Donnie Walsh he will not rehire Isiah Thomas to work for the Knicks, according to the New York Post. The report says that Dolan has become disillusioned with Thomas…

  22. Knicks have eyes for free agent Samuel Dalembert

    May 4, 2011, 9:55 AM EDT

    Samuel Dalembert

    The Knicks are talking defense this summer. Which is a change of pace since they didn’t play any last season. But while the talk of defense has in part focused on Mike D’Antoni and his coaching style (reports are he’s being pushed to hire an assistant as a defensive coordinator) that ignores the real problem…

  23. No news as deadline passes on Knicks Walsh, which is good actually

    May 2, 2011, 9:47 AM EDT

    Donnie Walsh

    From our “no news is good news” file… The deadline for Knicks owner James Dolan to pick up the option year on team president Donnie Walsh’s contract came and went Saturday without a word out of Madison Square Garden. Which is actually a good thing, the New York Post says (and when was the last…

  24. D’Antoni gets backing of Stoudemire, Anthony. Will it matter?

    Apr 26, 2011, 12:47 PM EDT

    New Jersey Nets v New York Knicks

    I feel I could do better walking into the Palms casino in Vegas (got to help out those struggling Maloofs), stroll right up to roulette table and place one bet on what the next number will be than I do of predicting what the New York Knicks will do this week. Owner James Dolan has…

  25. Now what, New York Knicks?

    Apr 25, 2011, 10:31 AM EDT

    Knicks Celtics Basketball

    If you asked any Knicks fan before the season if they would take a trip to the playoffs and a trade that brings them Carmelo Anthony this season, they would have taken it. But it’s premature to hang the “Mission Accomplished” banner. The Knicks accomplished goals and a good season. You can say they are…
