Multiple reports have confirmed that the New York Knicks have decided not to renew the contract of general manager Scott Perry. This comes after Knicks returned to the NBA playoffs after a season absence with a 5th-place finish in the Eastern Conference.

Perry has been the general manager of the Knicks since the 2017-18 season. This year, Perry worked closely alongside Knicks President Leon Rose and executive vice president William Wesley in an effort to improve on the Knicks’ disappointing 11th-place finish in the Eastern Conference the previous season.

The search for a new general manager is the latest in a series of pressing questions that the franchise will look to address this postseason. The Knicks do not have a first-round draft pick this year, making their search for fresh talent more challenging, however, they do possess four first-rounders from prior deals that they could leverage to broker a deal. The team also has other young talent that could be enticing to other teams, such as Immanuel Quickley, Mitchell Robinson, RJ Barrett, and Quentin Grimes.
