New York Knicks should let Scott Perry go before the draft

The New York Knicks aren’t in the market for a new GM just yet.  Current GM Scott Perry will remain in that position for the upcoming NBA draft.

Knicks new team president Leon Rose will do his “due diligence” later on.

Perry hasn’t been the problem.  He put together a decent looking roster.  The Knicks are one of the youngest teams in the league so that’s a start.  However, if Perry isn’t going to be in the Knicks future, why keep him around for the draft.

Perry shouldn’t be making decisions for the organization if he isn’t going to see them through.  They should just cut ties with him now.  Let the new regime begin the long quest to turn the franchise around.

Perry, unfortunately, should’ve gotten the axe when Steve Mills was relieved of his duties.  The Knicks needed to totally clean house.  They’re shouldn’t be any person in the front office that was been there the past few years, maybe even decade.  They need a clean slate.

What the Knicks have been trying to do hasn’t been working.  Yes, they did get younger and have a few good building blocks for the future.  That’s in partial part of Perry drafting well and being a decent elevator of talent, not Mills.

And while the New York Knicks have greatly under-performed, it’s not totally Perry’s fault.  However, Perry still shouldn’t be making decisions for the Knicks if Rose doesn’t want to keep him around.
