The Knicks have officially announced the front office shake-up, naming Mills as the team's new president and general manager. Grunwald remains on board as an advisor, according to the release.

Mills' return to the Knicks comes as even more a surprise because he had long been considered the favorite to replace Billy Hunter as the executive director of the NBPA, according to multiple reports.

Former MSG president and CEO Steve Mills is expected to return to the Knicks organization in the very near future, according to ESPN.com's Marc Stein. Stein and Ian Begley of ESPNNewYork.com report that the Knicks will soon announce Mills has been hired to replace current GM Glen Grunwald.

Grunwald became the Knicks' interim general manager in June 2011, and was eventually hired on a permanent basis in April 2012. While he wasn't running basketball operations when the team signed Amar'e Stoudemire or acquired Carmelo Anthony, he has overseen many notable moves since then, such as the additions of Tyson Chandler and J.R. Smith, and the decision to let Jeremy Lin walk.

This came out of nowhere..

Not really a big deal Donnie Walsh built the majority of the roster, Grunwald **** the bed with the Billups/Chandler situation and now we are stuck with Amare. And from what ive heard it was more about Allan Houston having more responsibility then hiring back Mills.
