Another Update: Chris Mullin Likes the Knicks

While it was earlier confirmed that Donnie Walsh favors Chris Mullin as his successor on the Knicks, we can now say that that the love fest is a mutual one.

“I like those guys,” the former Warriors GM said Friday.

The Post’s
Marc Berman further reports:

Mullin said Randolph has a lot to offer, but admits he’s not sure of his position. The Knicks are now looking at Randolph as a starting center.

“It’s been a whole two-year career,” Mullin said sarcastically. “His talent is incredible. He’s a hard worker, good kid. Careers take different paths. His potential is pretty high. Sometimes that’s dangerous. Because there is so much talent. Once he gets in a stable situation, he’ll do really well.”

Mullin praised Walsh’s work in remodeling the Knicks and building around Amar’e Stoudemire.

“Any time you get a star player like that, it makes it easier to evaluate what’s around him and what fits around him,” Mullin said. “The toughest thing in the league is if you don’t have that marquee guy, you don’t know what fits around guys. Now they have him and they can make legitimate evaluations.”


It appears as though Mullin may be on hand to help make such evaluations in the future.
