Steve Stoute Rumors

It also helps that, after seven consecutive nonplayoff seasons, Rose has presided over more hits than misses so far. That starts with the hiring of Thibodeau, who has clicked more seamlessly than anticipated with an inexperienced roster amid concerns that his stern approach was antiquated. After Sunday’s victory at Detroit, the Knicks moved to 18-17, which was good enough not only for fourth place in the Eastern Conference, but also to shift focus away from Dolan, last season’s dreadful headlines about his clashing with Lee and the much-panned hiring of Steve Stoute as a branding consultant. “Knick fans, we’re optimistic,” Lee said. “We see hope. We haven’t seen that in a while.”
Steve Stoute, the Knicks marketing consultant, hit the golf course recently wearing a pair of Bulls shorts, according to a photo posted to Instagram by sports and entertainment marketing executive Paul Rivera. Stoute was golfing with Rivera, the rapper Nas and Warriors star Draymond Green. Nas appeared to actually be wearing Knicks shorts but Stoute was sporting a pair that had “Bulls” printed largely across the front.
Stoute, the newly hired branding manager, appeared on ESPN Tuesday and stated he’s looking forward to a new coaching staff next season to develop some of the team’s young potential stars. The remark got Stoute in hot water with the administration for essentially firing Miller prematurely. It is believed an apology was given at the fan charity event, “Kicks and Cocktails’’ when Miller met the entertainment mogul for the first time. “I saw Steve at the charity event,’’ Miller said, said before the Knicks played the Wizards on Wednesday night. “We spoke over there. We had a private conversation.”
