The New York Knicks are finalizing a deal that will make CAA agent Leon Rose the next team president.  This comes as a quick shock for Knicks fans with the trade deadline looming at 3pm today.

Besides this seeming like it was rushed to find the new president, Rose is ‘low-key’ one of the most powerful people in sports.  He represents a lot of superstar players in the association.  For example, Karl Anthony-Towns and Devin Booker.   Some fans already have the thoughts that Rose could lead him to the Knicks.

Rose also is suppose to have a close relationship with D’Angelo Russell’s agent.  Which gets us thinking that the Knicks still could deal for Russell by the deadline.

Along with Rose will come William “World Wide Wes” Wesley.  He, along with Rose, will be in charge of basketball operations looking to turn around the Knicks.

As for now, Scott Perry will still be looking to make some decisions before the deadline.  However, this seems so rushed that Rose could ready to make moves for the Knicks today.

But, this is could be smart move for the New York Knicks.  It was mentioned that Anthony-Towns, Booker and Russell want to team up one day in the league.  Could this president move bring a young big 3 to New York?  Only time will tell.
