The New York Knicks promoted Glen Grunwald to executive vice-president and general manager on Tuesday after he assembled numerous pieces of a playoff roster this season.

Grunwald has been serving on an interim basis since July, after Donnie Walsh opted not to return. He acquired centre Tyson Chandler before the season to become the defensive presence the team long lacked, and signed key players such as Jeremy Lin, Baron Davis, Steve Novak and JR Smith along the way.

“Glen has done a terrific job this season,” Madison Square Garden chairman James Dolan said in a statement. “He is an intelligent, seasoned executive and we look forward to him continuing in the role of general manager for many years to come.”

Grunwald spent a decade —1994-2004 — in the Toronto Raptors' front office, including seven seasons as the team's general manager. During his tenure in Toronto, the Raptors acquired Vince Carter, drafted Tracy McGrady and made their only appearance in the NBA conference semifinals.

The Knicks went into Tuesday still with hopes of finishing sixth in the Eastern Conference, despite a tumultuous season that saw coach Mike D'Antoni resign in March.

Walsh made the two big moves that finally got the Knicks back to the playoffs last season, signing Amare Stoudemire in July 2010 and trading for Carmelo Anthony last February. But the work for rounding out the roster fell to Grunwald after Dolan and Walsh couldn't agree on a contract extension in June.
