With his future in New York uncertain under new Knicks president Phil Jackson, Steve Mills is once again surfacing as a strong candidate to replace Billy Hunter as executive director of the NBA players’ union, the Daily News has learned.

Mills was in the running to replace Hunter last summer before James Dolan rehired Mills on the eve of training camp after the Garden Chairman abruptly fired general manager Glen Grunwald. Mills was named president, and his plan was to hire a GM with a background in analytics, but that plan was altered dramatically when Dolan began to pursue Jackson in December.

The Princeton-educated Mills, who played for legendary coach Pete Carril, could have an inside track on the union job.
