William Wesley, among the most connected people in the NBA and a former football and basketball player at Pennsauken High, has been hired by the New York Knicks as executive vice president/senior basketball adviser. Wesley graduated from Pennsauken in 1983.
The Knicks announced Rose’s hiring in March.
Through the years, Wesley worked closely with Rose, most recently as a consultant at CAA.
“My long history with and respect for Jim Dolan and Leon Rose, as well as the chance to be part of the New York Knicks, made this an opportunity I wanted to pursue,” Wesley said in a statement released by the team. Frank Zanin worked a decade with the Sixers, most recently as a pro personnel scout for the 2011-2012 season, and was a pro scout for the Oklahoma City Thunder before being hired by the Knicks.
