Donnie Walsh Likely Staying With Knicks

by May 01, 2011

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.”
