Knicks could follow Warriors, Lakers examples by hiring an agent as president

James Dolan

New York Knicks owner James Dolan is reorganizing the team's front

ESPN was first to report the possibility of Rose joining the team's front office and now writes that although formal negotiations are expected to take place, nothing is likely to happen before today's trade deadline.

Knicks owner James Dolan released a statement Thursday afternoon, but did not announce any hiring.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Dolan was targeting Toronto president Masai Ujiri to "ultimately oversee New York's operations". Mills was president of Madison Square Garden Sports from 2003 to 2008, another harrowing period for the Knicks, during which Mills suggested that the Knicks hire Isiah Thomas, the former Detroit Pistons guard, as president.

Before he could be hired, Rose would have to sever ties with his existing clients.

As for Pelinka, he represented stars such as Kobe Bryant, James Harden and Andre Igudodala before becoming the Lakers general manager in 2017.

And Rose wasn't the only player agent under consideration in NY, where the Knicks now sit at just 15-36 heading into Thursday's game against the Orlando Magic.

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Knicks plan to hire player agent Leon Rose to replace Steve Mills, who was sacked earlier this week. He's also Karl-Anthony Towns' agent.

It remains to be seen whether or not Rose will be able to turn the Knicks' fortunes around although fans are pretty optimistic.

Rose will take over a Knicks team in the midst of yet another disastrous season. Mills then pivoted to sign veteran players to short-term contracts, later insisting those were the players NY was targeting all along.

Since Mills rejoined the Knicks in 2013, the franchise is 178-365, the worst record in the National Basketball Association, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

The Athletic's Frank Isola, who covered the Knicks for decades as a Daily News reporter, suggested that the "sell the team" chant precipitated Mills's firing.
