The McGuire family’s association with the Knicks dates back to the late 1940s, but that relationship is apparently over after the club elected not to renew the contract of longtime scout Scott McGuire, the son of the late Hall of Fame guard Dick McGuire, the Daily News has learned.
Dick McGuire Rumors
The Knicks did not issue a statement regarding the status of the highly respected McGuire, 49, who was not retained after 25 years with the organization. McGuire’s contract expired on July 31, but, according to a team source, the college scout was informed in January that his pact would not be renewed.
Metta World Peace stated in a text message he has decided on wearing his father’s high school number at Long Island City High – 51. World Peace had wanted to wear 15, which he donned at St. John’s and the Lakers, but it’s been retired by the Knicks twice for Earl Monroe and Dick McGuire.
