Milwaukee Bucks: Craig Robinson leaves for New York Knicks

According to a Monday morning report from Shams Charania of Yahoo! The latest move made to try and get the franchise heading in a positive direction is the hiring of Craig Robinson away from the Milwaukee Bucks. Steve Mills has been promoted to team president and Scott Perry has been hired as general manager.

Craig Robinson, who is the brother-in-law to former President Barack Obama, has been reportedly hired on to fill a number of roles within the front office.

The 55-year-old will hold a number of positions with the Knicks including general manager of the team's G-League affiliate in Westchester while overseeing player development.

Robinson, brother-in-law of former President Barack Obama, was a two-time Ivy League Player of the Year at Princeton, where he played from 1989 to 1983.

Following his stop at Brown, Robinson went to Oregon State University where he racked up 93 wins from 2008-2014, the 4th winningest coach in program history.

According to Charania, Robinson's job will be multi-faceted, taking on various different responsibilities in NY.

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