Kiki Vandeweghe interested in Knicks president job?

Regarding the front office, Mills and GM Scott Perry are likely to last the rest of the season, according to sources. That could change if James Dolan gets cranky, but, regardless, the front office is far from safe in the offseason. Names are already being floated across the league of executives who might replace Mills. They include: Masai Ujiri, Sam Presti, Kiki Vandeweghe (who is interested in the job, according to a source), Daryl Morey (who probably won’t last in Houston following the China controversy), Trajan Langdon and Sam Hinkie.

“That’s the appeal of scouting internationally, that it’s all about team and winning,” New Orleans General Manager Trajan Langdon said. “There are really no individualistic things that go on in Europe. When there is credit due, it’s to people who have won. A lot of times when people look at stat sheets and see a guy averaged nine points and three rebounds, (they say) why is he is the MVP of a game or a league? It’s because it’s not only about the stats; it’s what he brings to his team, whether it’s the defensive side of the floor, passing, screening. A guy like Nicolo, you can look at his stat line and be like, ‘I don’t understand the intrigue from the NBA for the last three years.’ But it’s what he brings – he’s a team-first guy, a winner. He’s highly motivated and a competitor. Those are the kind of people we want here, to be a part of the Pelicans organization. He’s another guy who’s going to make people better, on and off the court.”
Earlier this spring, Forde was also the search-firm consultant for the Pelicans, who ended up hiring David Griffin in April to run their front office. Two of the other finalists in New Orleans were Langdon and Harris. Both interviewed. The Pels loved Langdon, according to sources at the time, and those sources must’ve known what they were talking about since the Pels eventually hired him as Griffin’s No. 2. Harris also apparently impressed during his interview. Forde was there guiding the Pels through all of it. And so comes a logical follow-up question: Why were Langdon and Harris viable candidates for the actual job in New Orleans but not ones for interviews in Washington? The Wizards haven’t hit up either for interviews, according to sources. Maybe they didn’t like the fit. Maybe Leonsis wasn’t as impressed, for whatever reason.
