INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- The Indiana Pacers insist Donnie Walsh has not agreed to oversee basketball operations for the New York Knicks after the current NBA season.
The Pacers' chief executive and president said yesterday that he would step aside after his 24th season with Indiana, but he would not comment on his future. The Pacers have turned over operation of the troubled franchise to Hall of Famer Larry Bird.
Citing an unidentified source, ESPN.com reported that Walsh was expected to sign a three-year, 15-million-dollar contract with the Knicks at the end of this season.
The Web site does not report what would happen to embattled Knicks coach and team president Isiah Thomas once Walsh joined the Knicks.
A Knicks spokesman tells the AP that the team has no comment on the report.
