New York Knicks Retain Scott Perry, Grant Him One More Season
Change will come slowly in The Big Apple.
While the team’s head coaching search will linger into the NBA’s offseason, the New York Knicks appears confident in general manager Scott Perry, willing to give him at least one more season to prove that he could be the man to help rebuild a starving franchise.
“Scott is a well-respected basketball executive who I have known for more than 20 years, and I look forward to continuing to work closely with him as we look to build a winning team in New York,” said Leon Rose, the renowned player agent who recently took over as the team’s new president of basketball operations.
Both sides had a mutual option which was set to kick in on May 1st, forcing the Knicks to make a decision quick with time running out. Rose himself has had a lengthy relationship with Perry and the next year will go to show if the two sides can foresee long-term success working together.
The Knicks parted with head coach David Fizdale and former team president Steve Mills before the NBA’s trade deadline.
