The New York Knicks are having a season of disaster. Uncharted territories with a roster mixed with incompatible pieces is upon the New York Knicks. Thoughts of where the Knicks could pick during the next draft lottery are upon Knick fans already. The real question right now is whether or not Knicks General Manager, Scott Perry, is really the only glimmer of hope within the New York Knicks front office. Or is his future so murky, there’s no reason even discussing any possibility of Perry being a general manager past 2020.

The New York Knicks front office seems to be misunderstood for good reason most times. If Scott Perry doesn’t have the green light from Steve Mills in the decision making, then the Knicks may be at risk of another setback. However, if Mills and Perry are actually on the same page, Scott Perry will relish the opportunity to murder the 2020 NBA Draft in a good way just like he did during the 2018 draft.

If Perry makes a solid trade or two before the deadline and the Knicks begin playing their younger players, then there’ll actually be a direction the franchise is moving toward. The veteran movement is leading toward a dead-end direction and fans are extremely unhappy and unenthusiastic about it. By the way, what good is a Scott Perry’s draft selection if only the veterans play significant minutes? Knicks have never been known to develop from within, however, with the lack of free-agent interest and the plethora of super young players the Knicks possess, player development is crucial. Player development must become a strong suit for the Knicks and its younger players in order for the franchise to catapult its journey into a positive direction.
