Summary

(1:13)The New York Knicks parted ways with president Steve Mills, the team announced Tuesday.General manager Scott Perry will oversee the basketball operations in the interim, the team said.Knicks owner James Dolan has long coveted Toronto Raptors president Masai Ujiri to run the franchise's basketball operations, but complications involving Ujiri's contract status and New York's reluctance to surrender draft-pick considerations as potential compensation to Toronto are already dimming Dolan's desire to pursue Ujiri over the next several months, league sources tell ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.Dolan has discussed the job with one potential candidate recently, the sources said.Sources tell ESPN's Ramona Shelburne and Wojnarowski that Dolan is already considering a front-office model that is working with the Golden State Warriors (Bob Myers) and the Los Angeles Lakers (Rob Pelinka): hiring a top basketball executive out of the player agent ranks."Steve and I have come to the decision that it would be best for him to leave his role as president of the New York Knicks," Dolan said in a prepared statement.
