Knicks hire Barack Obama's brother-in-law to front office role

Knicks hire Barack Obama's brother-in-law to front office role

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. He was a vice president with the Milwaukee Bucks a year ago season.

The New York Knicks are hoping to restore order in Madison Square Garden, in a seemingly never-ending quest to make the Knicks great, or just relevant, again.

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

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.

The older brother of former First Lady Michelle Obama was hired by Milwaukee to be the team's vice president of player and organizational development in 2015.

Robinson and Mills were teammates at Princeton, where they played for legendary coach Pete Carril.

For the Bucks, Robinson joins John Hammond and Billy McKinney among the experienced executives to have departed the Bucks' front office this summer. In 2006, he became the head coach at Brown, and he then took the same job at Oregon State two years later. In turn, he'll be a welcome addition to the most diverse front office in the National Basketball Association. A methodical approach is finally being embraced.
