Mark Warkentien has signed a new deal with the New York Knicks after nearly taking a similar position with the Memphis Grizzlies.
Warkentien is director of player personnel for the Knicks.
Warkentien, like Steve Mills, is a favorite of Garden Chairman James Dolan. Warkentein is also represented by CAA, the same agency that represents Carmelo Anthony, J.R. Smith and assistant GM Allan Houston.
Mark Warkentien, the Knicks director of player personnel, was in Jamal Crawford's hometown of Seattle Monday to try to convince the guard to sign a one-year, $2.5 million contract with his former club.
