Knicks Reportedly Make Decision On GM Scott Perry

The New York Knicks have made the decision to retain general manager Scott Perry for “multiple” seasons, according to new reports.

Perry was hired away from the Sacramento Kings in July 2017. He signed a one-year extension in April 2020 that was set to expire.

Perry entered the 2020-21 season on the hot seat, but the Knicks were one of the NBA’s biggest surprises, posting a 41-31 record and earning the Eastern Conference’s No. 4 seed.

Julius Randle, the NBA’s Most Improved Player and a Perry signing, was critical to the team’s success, as was second-year forward R.J. Barrett and perhaps most importantly, head coach Tom Thibodeau.

While Perry has had his share of misses with the Knicks–drafting Kevin Knox in the 2018 lottery is a big one, and the jury is still out on last year’s top pick, Obi Toppin–he’s also been around for the additions of Randle, Barrett, Thibodeau, Mitchell Robinson, Immanuel Quickley and Derrick Rose, among others.

Considering the Knicks’ trajectory seems to be pointing up, and Perry has worked well with team president Leon Rose and executive vice president William Wesley, this extension makes a lot of sense.
