The New York Knicks basketball team has traded their second round draft choice of the 2019 National Basketball Association (NBA) Draft to the Sacramento Kings for the services of their general manager Scott Perry on Friday.
Even though Perry will be the general manager of the Knicks with a five year contract, Knicks president of basketball operations Steve Mills be calling the shots within the Knicks basketball team.
It will be interesting to see if the Knicks can get back into playoff contention with Mills and Perry running the team during the basketballs season since the Knicks under the leadership of former Chicago Bulls basketball coach Phil Jackson during his time as a front basketball executive with the Knicks was not able to get his coaches or players to buy into his triangle style offense of basketball he was able to execute as a basketball coach with the Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers.
It is likely that the Knicks basketball team will be in a rebuilding mode in the near future and hopefully for the sake of Knicks fans, the basketball team will not resemble a remake of The Three Stooges comedy act on the court and front office under the tenure of Phil Jackson.
Nevertheless the reason the Knicks had to give up a draft choice to the Kings was that Perry was under contract with the Kings at the time of the business transaction. As that commercial ads says “Only In New York.”
I mean Knicks owner James Dolan has done more damage to the Knicks basketball team from a championship contender to an also ran basketball team that has angered their fan base with an less than stellar basketball team.
