Former Indiana Pacers president and current New York Knicks consultant, Donnie Walsh is getting a taste of retirement finding plenty of free time living at his home in Indianapolis while advising the Knicks whenever owner James Dolan calls for help.

Mike Wells checked in with Walsh and found him happy with the slower pace but not willing to commit to a life of retirement yet. Nor was Walsh willing to comment on his next job prospects which of course means he's not ruling out making the commute south the Conseco Fieldhouse if the opportunity arises after his last year with the Knicks is up.

Q: Larry's future as president is murky. Any chance of you returning to the Pacers in some capacity?

A: I didn't come back here for that. I don't really want to get involved in it because I brought Larry here, I brought a lot of people here and they have a good opportunity to be successful.

I don't want to be in the middle of all that. I haven't talked to anybody about it. I won't talk to anybody about it. They're my friends and I really haven't given that a lot of thought since I'm a consultant for the Knicks for this year.
