KNICKS’ FORMER INTERIM GM REWARDED FOR HIS WORK THIS YEAR
Fri, 27 Apr 2012 03:14 AM EDT

The New York Knicks named interim managing director Glen Grunwald executive VP and GM of the team. Grunwald had been serving in the task on a temporary basis since taking over for former president and General Manager Donnie Walsh in July.

“It has been a great honor to play a part in this storied organization for the previous 6 seasons,” Grunwald declared in a statement released by the Knicks. “I would like to thank (Madison Square Garden boss) Mr. (James) Dolan for this opportunity and anticipate building on our commitment to give our followers a team that they can be proud of today, and in the future.”

Dolan said in a statement that he looks forward to Grunwald serving as the team’s General Manager for “years to come.”

“Glen has done a great job this season,” Dolan declared. “He is a clever, seasoned executive and we’re looking forward to him continuing in the role of GM for many years to come.”

Grunwald has made several moves in his temporary reign as interim General Manager that have worked out well for the Knicks.

He executed a 3-team sign-and-trade to get Tyson Chandler in the offseason. Chandler was one of the most coveted centers on the free-agent market.

The former Dallas Maverick has been instrumental in turning the Knicks from a poor defensive team into one of the top 5 in the league.

Grunwald also bought vet forward Steve Novak for a veteran’s minimum deal. Novak is among the best 3-point shooters in the league this year.

In addition, Grunwald signed Jeremy Lin straight after the season started. Lin emerged from the end of the Knicks bench to become the team’s start line guard. He led the team to a 7-0 record in February, turning New York’s season around and becoming a global phenomenon in the procedure. NFL spreads

Though it should be mentioned the Knicks were on the edge of cutting Lin before he turned in a 25-point, 7-assist night against the New Jersey Nets on February 4.

Grunwald will be faced with one or two big decisions this offseason, the 1st of which will be to hire a head coach.

Mike Woodson is coaching the team on a provisional basis. He’s led the Knicks to a 16-6 record since taking over for Mike D’Antoni on March 14. Woodson may gain benefit from the Grunwald hire because both he and Grunwald played college basketball at Indiana together and they stay close.

Woodson has the backup of Carmelo Anthony, who expounded that he “fully” thinks Woodson is the right man for the Knicks next season.

“I’m a big supporter of what coach Woodson has done. His strategy to the game and what he gets out of all his players even me. He holds everybody accountable and that’s what we need,” Anthony said. Basketball scores

Grunwald also will have to make calls this offseason on Lin (limited independent agent), Baron Davis (free agent), J.R. Smith (has a player option for 2012-2013, but is expected to decrease), among others.

The 53-year-old Grunwald joined the Knicks on September. 6, 2006, as the team’s senior vice president, basketball operations, after 10 years with the Toronto Raptors (1994-2004), including 7 seasons as GM.
