As the New York Knicks attempt to re-brand their image under new general manager Scott Perry, they've added a new face.

Although Mills has not been team president for long, he is quickly making a break from the Jackson era, which lasted three years.

The 55-year-old will reportedly serve as general manager of the team's developmental league in Westchester, in addition to assisting with player development.

According to a report from Sham Charania of The Vertical, the Knicks are hiring Craig Robinson to a front-office role.

Dow notches 9th straight record close
The Dow Jones industrial average hit intraday and closing records on Monday, adding to last week's record-setting performance. Tyson Foods rose 2.69 percent after the No. 1 US meat processor, reported better-than-expected quarterly profit and sales.

Although the team's slew of front office changes have ultimately overshadowed the rest of their offseason, the once heralded franchise still has a major decision to make regarding superstar forward Carmelo Anthony, who now remains in limbo. He played at Princeton with Knicks president Steve Mills.

For the Bucks, Robinson joins John Hammond and Billy McKinney among the experienced executives to have departed the Bucks' front office this summer.

Robinson has also held positions as head coach for the Brown Bears and Oregon State Beavers, and as assistant coach for the Northwestern Wildcats.

Gone are the days of the big splash or bust New York Knicks.
