Barack Obama and Craig Robinson watch a game during the 2015 women's NCAA basketball tournament. They also created the only front office in the Association with an African-American president and an African-American general manager-a progressive truth that was built upon with the latest hire.

He is the older brother of former U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama.

Multiple reports suggested he will have a versatile role, including player development duties with the Knicks' G-League team.


Phil Jackson was dismissed at the end of June while Steve Mills took over as team president.
