Scott Perry might have the shortest tenure of any Sacramento Kings executive in team history. According to Adrian Wojnarowski and Ian Begley of ESPN, Perry, 53, is in talks with the New York Knicks to become their new general manager.
Perry joined the Kings in April as the team's Executive VP of Basketball Operations under Vlade Divac and made an immediate impact on the franchise. The long time exec used his clout around NBA circles to help land interviews or workouts with eight of the top 22 players in the 2017 NBA Draft.
His stamp, along with Divac's was all over both the draft process and free agency as the Kings turned over eight of their 15 roster spots.
According to the report, Sacramento granted permission to New York, allowing him to chase the high profile position Wojnarowski deemed, "a dream job."
