Donnie Walsh

  1. Report: Knicks near two-year extension for Donnie Walsh

    Apr 25, 2011, 8:10 AM EDT

    Donnie Walsh

    The season has ended, let the speculation about the Knicks begin. It all starts with Donnie Walsh — the contract for the team president and defacto GM is up on April 30. Knicks owner James Dolan has to make a decision this week. And more than just pick up an option, he is looking to…

  2. If Donnie Walsh leaves New York, is Bryan Colangelo in?

    Apr 7, 2011, 4:05 PM EDT

    bryan Colangelo

    It’s 23 days until Knicks owner James Dolan has to make some kind of decision about extending the deal of team President Donnie Walsh. Or maybe it’s Dolan’s decision. Either way, the April 30 deadline is approaching and we know nothing. In the absence of solid information, you get rumors. Like this from the New…

  3. Could Donnie Walsh return to Knicks if he wants to?

    Maybe, for once, it’s not James Dolan screwing up the Knicks. We’re not sold on that — we will assume he is until proven otherwise, remember Dolan pushed to make sure the Carmelo Anthony deal happened no matter how many players went West — but maybe not everything is his fault. Maybe team President Donnie…

  4. New York made the playoffs so D’Antoni would like an extension

    Apr 5, 2011, 11:31 AM EDT

    Mike D'Antoni

    It could have been coincidental that Mike D’Antoni’s agent was around the Knicks offices and team just days after the team secured their first playoff spot since approximately the Carter administration. Or at least it felt like it was that long in New York. But it turns out no, the agent has a motive. Who…

  5. Jerry West says it’s too early to judge ‘Melo trade

    Mar 24, 2011, 3:16 PM EDT

    Image (1) jWest-thumb-250x166-18358.jpg for post 3706

    Jerry West is trying to talk some sense into New Yorkers. Good luck with that. The Logo spoke with the Associated Press and said what Knicks management and everyone on that end of the Carmelo Anthony trade has said — this is going to take time. To expect immediate results was a mistake, the trade…

  6. Walsh: Blame me for Knicks struggles, not players or coach

    Mar 22, 2011, 10:59 AM EDT

    New York Knicks Introduce Mike D'Antoni

    Let’s hope James Dolan doesn’t take him literally. Donnie Walsh did what a good executive of a slumping (1-6 in last seven) team should do — tried to take the heat off his players and coach. Walsh threw himself on the grenade when taking to Marc Berman of the New York Post: “I take more…

  7. How Deron Williams almost became a Knick (instead of ‘Melo)

    Mar 10, 2011, 9:08 PM EDT

    Deron Williams, Avery Johnson, Billy King

    If the Denver Nuggets front office had gotten their wishes — if they could have traded Carmelo Anthony to the New Jersey Nets for Derrick Favors and picks rather than to New York — then Deron Williams would be a Knick today. In one of the infinite alternate universes that is the reality, but in…

  8. The Knickerbocker Empire got its prize in Melo, but the real battle begins now

    Feb 22, 2011, 2:45 PM EDT

    Isaih Thomas Introduced as New Knicks GM

    Congratulations, Mr. Dolan! You’ve landed your prize! You have two, count ‘em two, stars to fill the seats in Madison Square Garden. Carmelo Anthony joins Amar’e Stoudemire for the Knicks and the star power is through the roof now in New York. You have successfully acquired a second NBA All-Star, which is difficult to do…

  9. Knicks issue statement clearly about Isiah Thomas (that nobody believes)

    Feb 20, 2011, 2:24 PM EDT

    The Beacon Theater Joins MSG Entertainment

    We’ve told you about Isiah Thomas’ influence in efforts to bring Carmelo Anthony to the Knicks. The specter of a return of Thomas — just after the team spent two years climbing out of a hole Thomas dug for the organization — was enough to push the Knicks to release a rare joint statement to…

  10. Isiah Thomas does not deny he is consulting with Knicks

    Feb 16, 2011, 4:19 PM EDT

    Image (1) ithomas_noh8-thumb-250x250-17886.jpg for post 3594

    This post will help you understand why, during the press conference introducing Carmelo Anthony as a Knick next week, you will hear Donnie Walsh thank Isiah Thomas through gritted teeth. Thomas was on sports talk radio in Miami Tuesday night and, amazingly, there was little talk about FIU basketball and a lot about the Knicks.…

  11. David Stern is trying to make sure Knicks keep Donnie Walsh

    Feb 9, 2011, 1:21 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Los Angeles Lakers

    Three years ago, it was NBA Commissioner David Stern who helped guide Donnie Walsh to the New York Knicks. The franchise needed a stable… no, it needed a sane hand at the helm. Walsh hasn’t been perfect, but he has changed the direction of the franchise. He got the payroll under control, started building with…

  12. Warkentien’s new contract with Knicks ends July 1

    Feb 7, 2011, 5:11 PM EDT

    Mark Walkenstein

    And we thought the hiring of Mark Warkentien director of pro personnel was a sign of stability coming to the New York Knicks. Silly us. We should know better. Warkentien’s contract ends July 1, according to Frank Isola at the New York Daily News. If you’re paranoid — and if you live in New York…

  13. Walsh gets a win, Knicks hire former Nugget GM Warkentien

    Feb 5, 2011, 12:21 PM EDT

    Mark Walkenstein

    In a week where he needed one, Knicks president of basketball operations Donnie Walsh got a win. The Knicks have hired former Nuggets GM Mark Warkentien as their director of pro personnel, the team announced Saturday. Since he was expected to be hired as a consultant so this is a much more entrenched position within…

  14. Report: Knicks sitting pretty in Carmelo Anthony sweepstakes

    Feb 5, 2011, 7:57 AM EDT

    Carmelo Anthony

    It’s good to be the Knicks right now. Sure on the court too, where they are the best they’ve been in a decade. But we were talking in the Carmelo Anthony sweepstakes, where the Knicks appear to have all the winning numbers. A new report by Marc Spears of Yahoo confirms that. Several sources told…

  15. Isiah Thomas still looms over the Knicks. Not figuratively, either.

    Feb 4, 2011, 9:58 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v New Jersey Nets

    Not only does Knicks GM Donnie Walsh not have his contract extension picked up in spite of the team’s turn around on the court (and in payroll), but Walsh hasn’t even really talked about the situation with James Dolan, the Knicks owner. The two haven’t talked about the team, its resurgence or a contract. Nothing.…

  16. NBA fines Knicks $200,000 for illegal workouts

    Feb 3, 2011, 2:42 PM EDT

    Image (1) Knicks_logo-thumb-250x201-14341.gif for post 6220

    An NBA investigation concluded that some New York Knicks staffers had been conducting illegal workouts with potential draft picks and fined the team $200,000, according to the New York Times. Rodney Heard, the scout in question, has been fined $20,000. While that’s a fairly steep fine the Knicks did not lose any draft picks, which…

  17. Donnie Walsh isn’t worried about Donnie Walsh’s future

    Feb 3, 2011, 2:15 PM EDT

    The Beacon Theater Joins MSG Entertainment

    Some time before May 1 — so three months from now — New York Knicks owner James Dolan has to pick up (or not) the contract for Knicks GM Donnie Walsh for next year. Because Dolan never speaks to the media (not in four years) and because his decisions in the past have not all…

  18. Will the Knicks pick up Donnie Walsh’s contract? And how is this even a question?

    Feb 1, 2011, 11:55 AM EDT

    Image (1) donnie_walsh-thumb-250x250-21082.jpg for post 6239

    Pat Riley will probably win it. I can see that. But Donnie Walsh of the Knicks deserves to be NBA Executive of the Year. In three seasons Walsh has taken a team drowning in big contracts for bad players and has turned them into something respectable. The Knicks are not contenders, but they are pretty…

  19. Knicks to hire former Nuggets GM — and not just for the ‘Melo connections

    Jan 31, 2011, 8:33 AM EDT

    Mark Walkenstein

    It seems to be a move about Carmelo Anthony in the short term, but this could be about the long-term future of the Knicks front office. Knicks GM Donnie Walsh is close to hiring former Nuggets GM Mark Warkentien as a consultant, Adrian Wojnarowski reports at Yahoo. You know, the job that was going to…

  20. Knicks’ Wilson Chandler fires agent, looks to cash in next summer

    Jan 21, 2011, 1:27 PM EDT

    WChandler_Hinrich

    Back in the fall, Wilson Chandler’s agent Chris Luchey tried to convince Knicks GM Donnie Walsh to sign his client — whose rookie deal was about to end — to an extension. The Knicks are all about financial flexibility going forward, so they said no. Chandler has gone out and had the best year of…

  21. If Knicks trade for 2012 pick, they can trade 2011 and 2013

    Jan 18, 2011, 10:43 AM EDT

    Image (1) donnie_walsh-thumb-250x250-21082.jpg for post 6239

    Knicks GM Donnie Walsh has said he has a way to get more than one first round draft pick — a not so subtle comment aimed at the Denver Nuggets (who still are working hard with the Nets on a Carmelo Anthony trade and are avoiding the Knicks like they have the Hantavirus). There have…

  22. Knicks Walsh says he is not letting Wilson Chandler go

    Jan 6, 2011, 12:40 PM EDT

    WChandler_Hinrich

    Last season, Wilson Chandler shot 26.7 percent from three and while he was a nice young player he was expendable as part of the Knicks future. No more. Chandler has worked on his shot, found a sweet spot in the left corner and this season is shooting 38.6 percent from three. In a Knicks attack…

  23. Shawne Williams may have figured it all out

    Dec 7, 2010, 12:56 PM EDT

    ShawneWilliams

    Shawne Williams is the flavor of the month in New York. He has gone from “guy invited to camp as practice fodder” to “guy getting regular minutes in Mike D’Antoni’s rotation.” He’s put up double-digit scoring in three-straight games off the bench and has hit 10 of 12 threes this season. He’s played in five…

  24. Mike D’Antoni isn’t going anywhere. Right now, anyway.

    Nov 16, 2010, 12:37 PM EDT

    Mike D'Antoni

    By and large, Knicks fans bought in to what team president Donnie Walsh was selling about Mike D’Antoni — you couldn’t judge him on the first two seasons. The roster had to be gutted to clear out cap space. He didn’t have the players to win regardless of system. This is the first season you…

  25. Trying to reassemble the Knicks

    Nov 15, 2010, 4:05 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v New York Knicks

    It was supposed to be different. It really was. With the roster expunged of the mess outside of Wilson Chandler who is still serviceable and Eddy Curry who at least keeps the bench firmly weighted to the ground, things were supposed to be different for the New York Knicks. They had a superstar in Amar’e…
