Former Madison Square Garden president Steve Mills will take Glen Grunwald's position as general manager of the New York Knicksaccording to ESPN's Marc Stein.

Mills has a lot of experience in the NBA, working his way up through several positions during his 16 years in the league office. Mills eventually ended up as COO and president of Madison Square Garden before leaving for a role with Magic Johnson Enterprises in 2009.

Mills was the man who initially hired Isiah Thomas as the Knicks' general manager during his previous tenure with the team.
