Stop the presses. Stop the presses. The Steve Mills era has finally come to an end.
Kazeem Famuyide opens this episode of “Big Apple Buckets” addressing the breaking news that Knicks team president Steve Mills has been fired. He talks about the news being music to the ears of Knicks fans, the decision happening two days before the NBA trade deadline and why this was a much-needed move for the Knicks.
Kaz breaks down potential replacements for Mills. Can Masai Ujiri come in to replace Mills and lead the Knicks front office? Kaz and I discuss whether Ujiri would leave the Raptors to come here. We also look at the Mills timeline from leaving the Knicks to returning in a GM role to becoming team president and now getting the pink slip. We discuss James Dolan playing a big factor in the hiring of a new front-office boss. And what will happen to Scott Perry? There was a lot to address on this team’s future.
NY Post Knicks beat writer Marc Berman drops by in his weekly spot. Berman discusses who may stay and who may go for the Knicks at the deadline. Can they find a suitor for Julius Randle? Will they keep Marcus Morris and re-sign him in the offseason? Is Mitchell Robinson untouchable? Berman has everything surrounding the trade deadline covered.
