Donnie Walsh Likely Staying With Knicks

After remodeling the entire Knicks roster the past few years, Donnie Walsh’s contract is almost up. But it looks like an extension awaits Walsh, reports the New York Post: “The deadline for Knicks owner James Dolan to exercise the option on team president Donnie Walsh’s final contractual year passed yesterday without a move, meaning the Knicks president likely is in store for a spanking-new contract extension instead, likely two years. The Post, citing multiple sources, reported exclusively on Wednesday that Walsh’s return next season is all but a done deal. The Knicks have yet to announce Walsh’s extension, nor has Walsh met with the media since the season ended last Sunday in a first-round sweep by the Celtics. The Knicks were the only club swept, and Walsh did not want to go into retirement in that manner. His only concern was regaining control as No. 1 decision-maker of basketball operations, believing too many voices were in Dolan’s ear, even outside the organization.”

    As a Nets fan, I was holding out hope Isiah was coming back…

    Isiah is gonna take hostages when he hears about this. I’m glad Walsh called out Dolan on listening to that tool as well.

    See it through Donnie, see it through. The core is solid, now let’s work on that bench and see what you can do about a starting 5.

    They better keep Donnie if they wanna keep improving the team….My only problem is the story came from the NY Post.

    It would be smart to keep Mr Walsh for two more years. Let him complete the job he started. Head Coach need to work on Defense. I think they are two player away. Center and Point Guard. Need to control the paint(Defensive Ctr).
