Stephen A. pleads. Emotional for the Knicks to pursue the lady after the playoff exit

Stephen A. Smith laments the Knicks’ postseason exit against the Heat and tells the front office to pursue Damian Lillard.

the The New York Knicks will not extend general manager Scott Perry’s contract, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski on Tuesday night, confirming the reports.

Perry, who was on an expired contract, worked under President Leon Rose and Executive Vice President William Wesley this season, as the fledgling Knicks made the playoffs and advanced to the second round. Perry has been the general manager since 2017-2018.

The Knicks have already been among the most interesting teams of the offseason, and the search for a new general manager is adding to the buzz.

The Knicks don’t have a first-round pick this summer, but they do have their own first-round pick in the next six drafts, plus four additional first-round picks from previous trades if they want to travel to the trade market. Young runners like RJ Barrett, Emmanuel Quickley, Quentin Grimes, and Mitchell Robinson could be tempting trade options for teams, too.

Recruiting a star in New York City hasn’t been easy (or productive) over the past decade. But the assets and the players are there, and what remains for us to see is twofold: Which superstars might become available this year, and how much the new Knicks management team will be willing to part with if and when that happens? Questions that GM will now have to answer.

New York finished 47-35 before defeating the Cleveland Cavaliers in the first round. The Knicks lost to the Eastern Conference champion Miami Heat in the second round.
