Knicks’ Walsh, Dolan Expected To Meet This Week

NEW YORK (WFAN/AP) — Donnie Walsh’s tenure with the Knicks may or may not end on June 30.

Walsh will meet with Knicks owner James Dolan “today or tomorrow” to hash out his future with the club, the New York Post reported on Tuesday.

According to the paper, Walsh wants to return to the Knicks “and finish rebuilding the franchise into a championship contender.”

In just three seasons, Walsh turned a team that overspent and underachieved into what Amar’e Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony believe is now a desired destination among NBA players.

Yet Walsh’s future is unclear. Dolan has until the end of this month to pick up the option on his contract for next season, otherwise it expires at the end of June.

“Absolutely. Donnie has done a phenomenal job. He’s one of the main reasons why I’m here in New York and how we have turned the Knicks franchise around,” Stoudemire said. “And coach D’Antoni is the reason why we have a winning record and had a chance to do something special in the playoffs if it wasn’t for a few injuries. So I definitely think that both of those guys will be back for next season.”

One thing’s for sure: There’s still building to be done with the Knicks. Though nobody knows for sure who will be doing it.

Will Walsh be back? Make your prediction in the comments below…

    He must be playin!
    Donnie basketball thats my man! He should be and will be back! Thats just the way Mr. Dolan does business it rubs people the wrong way but it dont bother me! I love the guy he spends money and thats all you can ask for in a owner!

  4. jeffrey chick says:

    I hope Dolan is smart enough to bring back the shining light that looks through the doors of the Garden.I also hope they get big men and a deeper bench as I have been a fan from 1964 65 and have stuck it out.The Garden and the NY FANS deserve to get a winner back here.
    I want to see a defensive coach here who is not afraid to get ejected showing how to support his players and team.Offensive players are okay,but to get into the finals and have any realistic shot at the championship you need to preach and show defense.
    I also have one more thing that maybe David Stern needs to see-get the officials to call the game as it was called in the old days.Defense wins and any team can score…..Defense is what its all about

    get rid of billups and get cp3. I feel we should keep walsh. They say if the machine isnt broken why fix it.

    1. Erick says:

      Billups and kevin are best friends. i feel that billups took a seat and aloud the boston to win the series. Kevin garnett isthe godfather of chancey billups children. Boston knew they wont stand a chance with billups in the line up.

      1. jeff chick says:

        Billups is a great player regardless who he knows or is friends with.Look how close Ewing,Jordan,Oakley, were and the refs never called a foul and you can tell me Charles Smith never got fouled????
        A player wants to win and get more money -regardless who he knows or is related to
        The Knicks were against Houston in 94-95 and the refs called 12 14 more fouls each quarter against the Knicks.
        I see the Knicks as a hated team,,,,when the league wanted defense-not from Knicks -to rough
        when league wanted offense-not from Knicks they didnt like who was on team

  6. MIKE LONES says:

    GET RID OF MIKE DAN PHONY!!!!!

    DEFENSE…DEFENSE…DEFENSE

      steve- you are an idiot
