Knicks guard Frank Ntilikina has reportedly switched agents amid trade rumors, according to the New York Daily News' Stefan Bondy.
Ntilikina, who has been included in rumors involving a potential Anthony Davis trade to a deal for another draft pick, signed with French agent Bouna Ndiaye after parting ways with his previous agents at CAA.
Ndiaye, according to Basket USA's Jonathan Demay, represents several other NBA players, including Nicholas Batum, Rudy Gobert and Evan Fournier.
While Bondy reported that Ntilikina "desires a relocation" from New York, Ndiaye dismissed those rumors, telling the New York Post's Marc Berman, "Frank is extremely happy to be part of the Knicks."
Ndiaye added to SNY that Ntilikina looks forward to being back in New York next year.
The 20-year-old Ntilikina will earn $4.855 million next season, his third in the NBA since the Knicks drafted him eighth overall in 2017.
He carries a $6.18 million option for the 2020-21 season. If his option is declined -- the deadline to exercise or decline it is Oct. 31 -- then he can become an unrestricted free agent next summer.
Ntilikina, the last first-round pick from the Phil Jackson regime, was limited to just 43 games due to various injuries last season. He averaged 5.7 points, 2.0 rebounds and 2.8 assists. In his career, he has averaged 5.7 points, 2.0 rebounds and 2.8 assists.
