The following is a statement from Executive Vice President and General Manager Glen Grunwald:
"Everyone at the New York Knicks organization is saddened to hear the news of Dean Meminger's passing. From the day he was drafted by this franchise in 1971, Dean was a friend and close family member of this team. On April 5, 2013, the 1973 World Championship team was honored at Madison Square Garden on it's 40th anniversary - there was no one prouder than Dean to be back on the court with his teammates. We send our heartfelt condolences to the entire Meminger family."
