Mark Warkentien Hired By Knicks, Reportedly To Help In Melo Chase
The New York Knicks have reportedly hired former Denver Nuggets General Manger Mark Warkentien in a move that could be aimed at luring Carmelo Anthony to the Big Apple.
Yahoo Sports’s Adrian Wojnarowski first reported the news on Sunday night. He says that the move “undoubtedly has roots in the pursuit of Carmelo Anthony,” who has said he would like to play for the Knicks.
Wojnarowski said that Warkentien is being hired as a consultant, but is ultimately expected to move into a full-time executive position.
