The Knicks are in the heart of the offseason without a general manager, which seems odd. But in this case, there are several executives in the front office who can take on GM duties during this period. I assume Gerrson Rosas, senior basketball adviser and former president of the Timberwolves, has a larger role. Rosas, whose Minnesota tenure ended due to a toxic work environment, is close to Rose and Thibodeau.
Brock Aller (Vice President of Basketball, Planning), Frank Zanin (assistant general manager, pro scouting), and Walt Perrin (assistant general manager, college scouting) could also assume more responsibilities in the absence of a formal general manager (New York and the former GM Scott Perry parted ways before the NBA Draft). I don’t know if the Knicks have spoken to outside candidates for the vacancy.
