INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -The Indiana Pacers insist Donnie Walsh has not agreed to oversee basketball operations for the New York Knicks after the season.
``Donnie said this morning there's nothing clear about his future,'' Pacers spokesman David Benner said Tuesday. ``When there is he'll make a statement. He hasn't agreed to anything with anybody.''
Walsh, the Pacers' chief executive and president since 1988, said Monday he would step aside after this season, but he would not comment on his future. The Pacers have turned over operation of the troubled franchise to Hall of Famer Larry Bird.
The Associated Press left a message with Walsh's office, but his secretary said he would not respond to the inquiries.
On Monday night, ESPN.com reported that Walsh will go to the Knicks. The Web site, citing an unidentified source, said he was expected to sign a three-year, $15 million contract with the Knicks at the end of this season.
What would happen to embattled Knicks coach and team president Isiah Thomas once Walsh joined the Knicks was not known, ESPN.com reported.
Knicks spokesman Jonathan Supranowitz told the AP the team would not comment on the report.
