Per NY Newsday:
In 2017, Scott Perry was appointed general manager of the Knicks with the responsibility of providing stability to a team that was in disarray. He succeeded in doing that, clearing the air and closing the gap as a new front office grew around him. But Newsday has discovered that Perry is not coming back because his contract is about to expire.
When Perry’s contract expires this summer, it has been confirmed by a source that he will leave. The legacy will be one of stability and success at a company that has not experienced either for 20 years.
In the wake of the Phil Jackson era, Perry teamed up with Steve Mills to provide a seasoned basketball personnel manager. Perry first helped to facilitate Carmelo Anthony’s departure, which put the franchise on a new course. As general manager, he drafted RJ Barrett and Mitchell Robinson and signed Julius Randle.
