It sounds like the Knicks could be keeping close tabs on another Atlantic Division team to find their next general manager.
According to a report from Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News, new Knicks president Leon Rose has been keeping an eye on current Philadelphia 76ers GM Elton Brand.
The Knicks, of course, still have Scott Perry in place as their current GM, but with a new team president, they could be looking to move on.
Brand, meanwhile, has one year remaining on his contract with the Sixers, but with the team under-performing despite having two of the league's best young superstars in Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons, Rose and the Knicks could look to pick Brand up should he be let go by the Sixers.
Since being hired to replace Bryan Colangelo in Philadelphia, Brand has pulled off a number of trades to try to find the right players around Embiid and Simmons -- from Jimmy Butler to Tobias Harris to Josh Richardson -- while also signing Al Horford to a lucrative contract.
Rose, who is from Cherry Hill, N.J., just across the Delaware River from Philadelphia, has certainly worked with Brand in the past, as Rose previously represented Embiid as his agent.
