But according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Ramona Shelburne, the Knicks' ownership group is considering replacing Mills with an NBPA certified agent.

The New York Knicks fired president of basketball operations Steve Mills on Tuesday, and many believe they will have a hard time finding a reputable candidate to replace him. According to Wojnarowski, they are reportedly following a recent model set by the Golden State Warriors and Los Angeles Lakers, who have recently hired former agents in Bob Myers and Rob Pelinka as executives, respectively. 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.

As an agent, Rose has represented the likes of LeBron James, Allen Iverson, Carmelo Anthony and Joel Embiid.

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.

The move comes as the Knicks, once again one of the worst teams in the National Basketball Association, are on track to miss the playoffs for the seventh straight season - the franchise's longest such streak since the 1960s.

Mills has been the Knicks' president since July 2017 and previously worked as their executive vice president since 2013. Both have since been promoted to become president of basketball operations for those marquee franchises.

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. "I will always be a Knicks fan".

Dolan's shakeup began in December, when he fired head coach David Fizdale.

"We are actively looking for a new president of the New York Knicks and hope to conclude the search as quickly as possible", Dolan said in a statement. The Knicks are 13-35 (NBA's 3rd worst record) and about to have their 18th loss by 10+ points this season'.
