Perry, 59, was hired in 2017 as the Knicks were in the midst of four straight seasons with a losing record. He helped the team get back to the postseason in ’21, ending a seven-year drought, as New York lost in the first round against the Hawks in five games.
The Knicks went 47–35 this past season, posting their best record in a decade. They advanced to the second round where they were knocked out by the Heat in six games.
Perry’s contract expired after the season, and he’s currently exploring alternative options, Begley reports. His front office career began in 2000 with the Pistons, and he previously worked as the vice president and assistant general manager of the Magic prior to coming to New York.
Most of the team’s key players remain under contract for next season, including Jalen Brunson, Julius Randle, RJ Barrett and Mitchell Robinson. The Knicks do not have a pick in the upcoming draft, but are in possession of 11 first-round picks over the next seven drafts.
