Knicks to hire Pops Mensah-Bonsu for G League front office

Mike Vorkunov: The Knicks are planning to hire Pops Mensah-Bonsu as president and director of G League operations, sources tell me and @Shams Charania. Mensah-Bonsu, a four-year NBA vet, served as GM of the Wizards‘ G League team last season and previously was a scout for the Spurs.

The release said the program will involve rehabilitating a 143-unit property in the neighborhood — first through “enhanced safety measures, community gardens, art projects, and an outdoor playground,” and then by adapting community spaces to provide community resources, from libraries, to STEM facilities and more. Deng, Covington, and fellow ex-NBAers Pops Mensah-Bonsu and Matt Barnes will all invest in the project.
The team is the Washington Wizards’ G League affiliate, named for go-go music, a hard fusion of blues, rhythm and blues, and funk that’s part of Washington, D.C.’s, bustling musical culture. Everything about the team fits the appeal of the local fan. And for Mensah-Bonsu, he’d already made Washington his home and quickly immersed himself in the city’s diverse climate. When he got the call from the Wizards to gauge his interest for the general manager position, he was an NBA scout with the San Antonio Spurs, a job he’d been in for about a year. The very next day he flew home to interview with Wizards general manager Ernie Grunfeld. It was a success.
As general manager, he oversees the daily operations of the Go-Go while engaging in long- and short-term strategic planning. “I always make sure to check in with players and make sure everything is going smoothly and morale is high,” he said. “As a leader, they feed off of my energy, so regardless of if I’m having a good or bad day, I come into that office with a smile on my face. I always make sure they receive my positive energy. After practice, I catch up with the head coach and see how he feels. I’m always thinking ahead of how I can help make this team better.”
