Could the next GM of the New York Knicks be someone from the WNBA? That answer is a yes, according to Frank Isola of the New York Daily News.
In a tweet, Isola reported that Isiah Thomas is a “dark horse” candidate for the vacant GM position, that became available when Knicks owner James Dolan fired Phil Jackson. Thomas is currently the President for the New York Liberty.
