When the Knicks parted ways with Steve Mills, reports surfaced that Dolan had interest in hiring a player agent, which is a model the Warriors and Lakers have used in recent seasons. But according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Ramona Shelburne, the Knicks' ownership group is considering replacing Mills with an NBPA certified agent.

Both Rose (far right) and William Wesley (near right) worked at Creative Artists Agency, where they represented the likes of 76ers center Joel Embiid, Thunder point guard Chris Paul, Suns shooting guard Devin Booker, and Timberwolves center Karl-Anthony Towns.

Golden State hired Wasserman Media Group's Bob Myers back in 2011 while Los Angeles brought on Landmark Sports founder Rob Pelinka in 2017.

New York Knicks owner James Dolan said Thursday he doesn't intend to sell the historic franchise and that the search for a new president is underway.

At 15-36, the Knicks now have the third-worst record in the Eastern Conference this season.

According to Newsday's Steve Popper, Knicks general manager Scott Perry is not expected to remain with the team.

Mills was the Knicks' general manager from 2013-17 before being elevated to president after Jackson's departure. He added: "I will always be a Knicks fan".

Mills' firing is the second major change for the Knicks this season. Since rejoining the Knicks in 2013, the franchise has posted a 178-365 record, the worst in the National Basketball Association.

Rose will take over a Knicks team in the midst of yet another disastrous season. Mills lasted 2 1/2 years as team president, but in that time, the Knicks were spurned by every A-list free agent despite playing in the league's biggest market.
