Donnie Walsh

Indiana Pacers CEO Donnie Walsh will join the New York Knicks after he leaves the Pacers at the end of the season, according to an ESPN report on Tuesday.

Walsh is expected to sign a three-year, $15 million contract with New York at the end of this season to become the president of the basketball operations division. However, it is uncertain what will happen to current Knicks president of basketball operations and head coach Isiah Thomas once Walsh joins the Knicks.

Walsh announced Monday that he will finish the season with Indiana, but did not comment on his plans for the future. Pacers team president Larry Bird will take over many of Walsh's duties after he departs.

Walsh joined the Pacers as an assistant coach in 1984. He became general manager in 1986 and president two years later. Walsh hired Bird as coach in 1997 and after three years, Bird moved into the front office, working closely with Walsh.

The announcement nor the appointment of Bird were surprises. Many expected Bird to become Walsh's successor.
