Report: New York Knicks targeting Toronto Raptors president Masai Ujiri after parting ways with Steve Mills

The New York Knicks are parting ways with team president Steve Mills, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported on Tuesday.

Wojnarowski added that James Dolan, who is the executive chairman and CEO of The Madison Square Garden Company, is targeting Toronto Raptors president Masai Ujiri to "ultimately oversee New York's operations."

Ujiri is under contract with the Raptors through 2020-21.

The Knicks promoted Mills to being the franchise's president in 2017. Scott Perry replaced him as New York's general manager.

Perry will reportedly continue his role as general manager for the "foreseeable future."

At 15-36, the Knicks currently have the third-worst record in the Eastern Conference this season. They haven't made the playoffs since the 2012-13 season.
