Former Cleveland Cavaliers general manager David Griffin has pulled his name out of the New York Knicks’ front-office search, a source told The Undefeated’s Marc J. Spears.
Griffin turned down the opportunity because he and the Knicks couldn’t agree on a role, a source said.
He and the Knicks “just couldn’t make it work,” a source with knowledge of the talks told ESPN’s Dave McMenamin. The issue came down to finding a proper role for Griffin while front-office executive Steve Mills continues to work for the team.
With Griffin having withdrawn from consideration, sources with knowledge of the Knicks thinking said Mills will continue to lead the Knicks’ front office for the foreseeable future, as he has throughout free agency.
