New York Knicks general manager Scott Perry revealed on ESPN’s SC6 that he has not yet met team owner James Dolan. Perry, who was officially hired as Knicks GM last Friday, said he’d dealt with team president Steve Mills throughout the hiring process rather than Dolan. “I have not met with him yet, but I’m looking forward to that,” Perry said of Dolan.
Perry added on Friday that he had no reservation about taking the Knicks’ GM position in light of Dolan’s history of involvement with management decisions. “No I really didn’t,” Perry said. “Again, Steve Mills, who I worked with very closely in this process, I have a lot of trust and faith in him. The organization has been very welcoming of me. I’m very confident in who I am as a person and am confident in the vision that’s been set here.”
“Kyrie informed the Cavs he no longer wanted to play alongside LeBron,” said a source with knowledge of the meeting between Irving, Gilbert, and Cavs’ leadership. “He wants to be the focal point, a franchise guy.”
Cleveland owner Dan Gilbert has been closing on the Altman promotion for weeks now, turning his focus to him in the wake of Chauncey Billups turning down an offer to become president of basketball operations, league sources told ESPN.
