Chris Mullin to Join NYK Front Office?

Chris Mullin was very visible at this week’s Big East Tournament at the Garden and no doubt spent some quality time with Knicks president Donnie Walsh. Mullin, the St. John’s legend, is on the outs with Golden State and could end up working for Walsh next season.

Walsh has hinted that he may make some changes to the front office, although Glen Grunwald has proven to be an important asset and will likely stay. Grunwald is exactly the kind of employee you want working for you; he does his job, he does it well and he’s not a self-promoter. Grunwald, hired by Isiah Thomas, prefers to play it low-key and I think Walsh appreciates that style.

The three most likely candidates to be brought in are Mullin, Billy Knight and Billy King. All three have a history with Walsh, dating back to their days with the Indiana Pacers.
