Leon Rose will officially become the president of basketball operations of the New York Knicks after the All-Star Break.

“Leon Rose, the former super agent for Creative Artist Agency, won’t be introduced as the Knicks president until after the All-Star break.

According to multiple sources, decertifying as an agent with the Players Association is just an excuse for the delay. That procedure only takes a day.

According to sources, the real issue is tying up loose ends at Creative Artist Agency and finding new agents for his many clients, preferably with CAA.

Another factor, according to sources, is the matter of settling up all the financial compensation he is due from the complicated network of CAA,” Marc Berman of the New York Post reports.
