James Dolan says he is not selling the New York Knicks.
Dolan issued a statement on Thursday to say two things. One, they are looking to hire a team president. And two, he is not selling the team.

Dolan’s statement comes the same day as reports saying the Knicks are working to hire agent Leon Rose as their president of basketball operations. Rose and William Wesley (aka “Worldwide Wes”) would help run the team.
Fans who have been disenchanted with the franchise have repeatedly taunted Dolan with “sell the team” chants, but Dolan will not give them their wish. Instead, he’s hoping these front office changes will help improve things.
