Could Knicks Advisor Donnie Walsh Be Lured Away By The Orlando Magic?

Former New York Knicks president Donnie Walsh is currently an advisor for the team. His contract runs until June 30. The 71-year-old NBA veteran front office man is still in demand. One team in particular which could be interested in Walsh is the Orlando Magic (via CBS New York).

The Magic have a need to calm down the negativity after the saga of retaining star center Dwight Howard and the ensuing drama between Howard and head coach Stan Van Gundy. As the Knicks general manager from 2008-2011, Walsh unloaded salary to allow New York to sign talented free agents. He brought in Amare Stoudemire and Carmelo Anthony, although the Anthony deal reportedly was contentious because Walsh thought the Knicks gave up too much talent to acquire him.

MSG chairman James Dolan has given Walsh the OK to talk with other NBA teams about open executive positions.
