If you were to use an agent at this point where you got an agent involved to help you find a buyer to sell your contract through, then YOU would owe the agent the commission since YOU would be the seller in this case between you, the agent and your buyer.
The agent(s) involved with your getting the contract would be paid a commission by the seller. Any agents involved after that where they helped you find a buyer to sell your contract to would be paid a commission by you as the seller. There would basically be two separate sales taking place in this case. One between the seller and you. One between you as the seller and your buyer you sell your contract to. So you would not want to get an agent involved to help you find a buyer unless you want to pay a commission to your agent as the seller.
Any agent involved that brought the deal to you where you entered into a purchase contract would be paid the commission by the seller, regardless of who you assigned your contract to.
