The New York Knicks have long had interest in Masai Ujiri, but James Dolan may currently find it too difficult of a scenario to make happen.

When the Knicks parted ways with Steve Mills, reports surfaced that Dolan had interest in hiring a player agent, which is a model the Warriors and Lakers have used in recent seasons.

"The sense I've gotten is as much as (Dolan has) coveted Masai Ujiri, the hurdles it would take to get there from draft compensation to Toronto letting him out of his contract to Masai wanting to do this, it seems he has lost his desire to go forward and chase that," said Adrian Wojnarowski on ESPN.

Ujiri is under contract through the 20-21 season with the Raptors.
