The front office of the New York Knicks have been staying away from the media following last Tuesday’s lottery. According to Howard Beck, a NBA ‘spy’ said Scott Perry and Steve Mills were scene slipping out of an alternate exit in their hotel.
The move by Perry and Mills was to avoid having to speak with the media. Other reports surfaced of Knicks brass again avoiding the media after meeting with Duke forward RJ Barrett last Wednesday.
Something seems fishy. But, I like it.
Could this mean that trading the 3rd overall pick is being tossed around in a trade package for Anthony Davis? The Knicks appear to want to play this off-season close to the chest, despite all the Kevin Durant rumors.
Not much information has been leaked on the Knicks front regarding the Davis trade. They always say that ‘no news is good news’. In this case, maybe.
Perry and Mills could be plotting something big. Recently, the Pelicans inquired more information on Kevin Knox, so the Knicks deal is not dead yet. Mills and Perry were seen speaking to Pelicans GM David Griffin last Wednesday as well, eyes emoji. So, there could be a lot more information that is cooking that fans do not know about.
The Knicks brass avoiding seems more good than bad. They do not want to entertain reporters digging for any little piece of information to get a story and make waves. The Knicks still sit in a good position to make those waves this summer. Fans have to trust Perry and Mills.
Mills finally did address the media address one reporter expressing that they are excited with where their at and will continue to evaluate players.
