The New York Knicks will consider Oklahoma City Thunder general manager Sam Presti as a candidate to fill the president of basketball operations vacancy, according to ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne.

The Knicks have stated they will favor honing into free agent acquisitions with only two days until the market opens, instead of aiming to replace Phil Jackson‘s post in a near future.

Presti is still under contract with the Thunder, so if he is indeed chosen by New York, they would have to offer Oklahoma City some compensation in return.

The 40-year-old executive has been with the organization since 2007, formerly part of the now-defunct Seattle Supersonics.

The Knicks have also shown interest in former president Isiah Thomas, along with Toronto Raptors president Masai Ujiri and former Cleveland Cavaliers GM David Griffin.
