NEW YORK (AP) -The New York Knicks may have started the process of finding a replacement for Isiah Thomas, according to published reports.
The New York Times reported Wednesday that Madison Square Garden chairman James Dolan has had informal talks with Indiana Pacers CEO Donnie Walsh. The report cited a person with ties to Walsh, who said the sides will likely meet next week.
The Daily News first reported the talks Monday. Both reports said no offer had been made, adding there was no indication Walsh was Dolan's top candidate if he removes Thomas as president.
The Knicks are 19-48 and will finish with one of the worst records in franchise history. They have made the postseason only once since Thomas was hired as team president in December 2003, getting swept by New Jersey in 2004.
If Thomas is removed as president, it's unknown if he would remain as coach. He is 52-97 since replacing Larry Brown in the summer of 2006.
Dolan has not spoken to the media since last March, and the Knicks haven't said when he will. Walsh has said he won't talk about his future until after the season.
