The New York Knicks have fired president Steve Mills. This move comes only two days before the NBA’s trade deadline on Thursday.
ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported the news via Twitter on Tuesday morning.

The Knicks already fired their head coach, David Fizdale, on December 6, 2019. He was let go after a 4-18 start to the season. Michael Miller is still the head coach for the Knicks in an interim capacity for now.
New York is 15-36, good for 13th in the Eastern Conference. This is the fourth-worst record in the entire NBA. It is expected that general manager Scott Perry will both take over duties as president and remain the GM for the team.
No successor, past Perry in the interim, has been named for Mills.
