NEW YORK (AP) - The New York Knicks fired President Steve Mills on Tuesday, shaking up the front office just two days before the National Basketball Association trade deadline, a person with knowledge of the decision told The Associated Press.

Shortly after the Knicks dismissed Mills on Tuesday, they began targeting Toronto Raptors executive Masai Ujiri, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported. Things are not going well in NY tonight'. Mills was president of Madison Square Garden Sports from 2003 to 2008, another harrowing period for the Knicks, during which Mills suggested that the Knicks hire Isiah Thomas, the former Detroit Pistons guard, as president.

Mills was the Knicks' general manager from 2013-17 before being elevated to president after Jackson's departure.

Mills originally joined the Knicks organization in 1999 as executive vice president of franchise operations before leaving in 2009. Other clients include former NBA All-Star D'Angelo Russell (who has been linked to NY in recent trade rumors), Donovan Mitchell, Jaren Jackson Jr.
