New York Knicks has extended the contract of its general manager, Scott perry, as advanced by the journalist from . Shams Charania. Perry came to the Knicks in 2017 from Steve Mills and survived his departure from the club and the arrival of Leon Rose to their offices.
Perry’s first three years as a Knicks executive were tough. The three seasons ended with very negative win-loss balances: 29-53, 17-65 and 21-45. But the campaign just ended moved along very different paths, getting New York to be fourth in the East with a 41-31 record, and then fell in the first round of the playoffs against the Hawks.
Perry, 57, is the second in the offices of the New York team, reporting to Leon Rose.
The general manager of the Knicks has the great endorsement of having promoted the arrival of Julius Randle to the team in 2019.
Perry’s experience as an NBA executive is vast. He began in 2000 as a member of the Pistons law firms (including the year the franchise won the title -2004-). He arrived in 2007 at Seattle Supersonics as assistant general manager, just the year in which the team selected in the draft to Kevin Durant. He returned to Pistons in 2008, where he was vice president of Basketball Operations until 2012; in 2012 he came to Orlando as assistant general manager; in 2017 he signed for the Kings as vice president of Basketball Operations; and 3 months after arriving in Sacramento he left for New York, where he will continue to work for the next few years.
