The Knicks have agreed to a multiyear contract extension with Scott Perry, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.
Perry’s contract expired after the year, after the new regime headed by Leon Rose took over prior to this past season. Perry joined the Knicks in 2017 under former lead executive Steve Mills.
Rose and executive William Wesley decided to keep Perry after Mills was relieved of his duties and it appears they’re glad they did.
“Scott worked very well with Leon and Wes,” a source told Marc Berman of the New York Post. “[They] have a very talented and experienced front office, and he’s a valuable piece of it.”
Since taking the job, Perry has signed forwards Julius Randle and Bobby Portis, and drafted center Mitchell Robinson. Randle was named NBA Most Improved Player, Robinson has been on the rise — and Portis has since departed, winning a title with the Bucks.
