Rose is an agent with CAA, and represented talents such as Allen Iverson. He was also previously LeBron James’ agent. He was instrumental in bringing together Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade and LeBron, forming the Miami Heat super-team that played in four straight NBA Finals.
This hire comes in the wake of the Knicks firing Steve Mills, just two days before the NBA trade deadline. Also in talks to be brought into basketball operations is another CAA consultant, William Wesley.
