Former Cleveland Cavaliers GM David Griffin took his name out of the New York Knicks' front-office search, according to The Undefeated's Marc J. Spears.
Griffin, who spent three years as the Cavs' GM before he and the team parted ways in June, reportedly took his name off New York's list when he and the Knicks organization could not agree on a role.
According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Griffin would not have had full authority on basketball decisions and he would not have been able to bring in his own staff. One of the moves he reportedly wanted to make was removing Allan Houston as assistant GM, according to the New York Daily News' Stefan Bondy.
The Knicks have been looking for a new president since they fired Phil Jackson in June. New York also reportedly discussed having Oklahoma City Thunder GM Sam Presti replace Jackson.
