British-Ghanaian basketball executive and former NBA player, Pops Mensah-Bonsu, has been named Director of Minor League Operations for NBA franchise New York Knicks.

Mensah-Bonsu was expected to take over as General Manager of Knicks affiliate side-Westchester Knicks- in the NBA’s minor league, the Gatorade League (G League) this season after leaving a similar role with Washington Wizards.

However, according to New York-based reporter Ian Begley, Mensah-Bonsu will serve as Director of Knicks Minor League Operations in a slew of moves including former player Allan Houston’s new role as Vice President-Player Leadership and Development.
