With the possibility of a trade looming, Knicks guard Frank Ntilikina dropped CAA as his agency last season and planned to sign with French agent Bouna Ndiaye, the Daily News has learned.

Ntilikina, who was drafted eighth overall by Knicks in 2017, is on the trading block and desires a relocation, a source told the News. The Knicks declined offers to move Ntilikina at the trade deadline in February, acquired another point guard in Dennis Smith Jr., and Ntilikina quickly decided to change agents.

Ndiaye, who is from France, exclusively reps French players in the NBA — Rudy Gobert (Jazz), Nicolas Batum (Hornets), Evan Fournier (Magic) and Ian Mahinmi (Wizards). CAA, meanwhile, is one of the biggest NBA agencies.
