It looks like the Knicks are closing in on a new general manager — but not a team president.
After many conversations and a dinner meeting with acting team president Steve Mills on Friday, the Knicks are moving toward contract negotiations with David Griffin to become the team’s next general manager, according to an ESPN report.
Griffin, who formerly was the Cavaliers GM, reportedly traveled to New York to meet with Mills and the two have been discussing how to shape a future Knicks partnership.
ESPN also reported Griffin is expected to meet with owner James Dolan in the near future.
Earlier Saturday, the Knicks found out Tim Hardaway Jr. would return to the Garden after the Hawks did not match the team’s four-year, $71 million offer sheet.
