Knicks parting ways with general manager Scott Perry

The Knicks will part ways with Scott Perry, their general manager since 2017, when his contract expires this summer, according to multiple reports.

Perry was hired as GM under former team president Steve Mills and he was retained when Mills was replaced by former agent Leon Rose in 2020 before signing a multi-year extension the following year.

Following Phil Jackson’s departure in June 2017, the Mills-Perry combo traded All-Star forwards Carmelo Anthony later that year and Kristaps Porzingis in 2019.

During Perry’s tenure, the Knicks signed Julius Randle as a free agent after they were spurned by max-contract free agents such as Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.

Notable draft picks have included RJ Barrett, Mitchell Robinson, Immanuel Quickley, Quentin Grimes and Obi Toppin, as well as since-traded lottery pick Kevin Knox.

Knox was dealt along with a first-round pick in 2022 for forward Cam Reddish, who was packaged with another first-rounder earlier this spring in a trade that landed versatile wing Josh Hart.

The latter is expected to seek a multi-year contract as a free agent this summer once he declines a $12.9 million player option.

Perry’s departure comes following the team’s second playoff appearance in three seasons, including the franchise’s first advancement to the second round of the playoffs since 2013 this spring.

The Knicks control 11 first-round picks over the next seven NBA drafts, although they don’t currently own a selection this summer after the Mavericks retained their top-10 protected pick from the Porzingis trade.

One potential replacement for the 59-year-old Perry could be former Timberwolves president Gersson Rosas, who was added to Rose’s front office as a consultant last season.

Perry’s exit was first reported Tuesday night by Newsday.
