Scott Perry Rumors
David Fizdale: “Scott (Perry) and these guys are big-time sticking to an awesome plan of bringing in guys that maybe didn’t work out at a place where they were at before but are high draft picks. Under some good player development and some culture, maybe they can turn into something close to what they were expected to be … We’re doing it the right way.”
Ian Begley: The Knicks are strongly considering adding former Orlando Magic scouting coordinator John Halas to the organization, league sources told ESPN. Halas worked with Knicks general manager Scott Perry in Orlando. Halas would likely be added to the Knicks’ scouting department.
The New York Knicks remain unlikely to reincorporate exiled center Joakim Noah into the team under new coach David Fizdale and still plan to part ways with him before training camp, league sources told ESPN. Assuming general manager Scott Perry continues to be unable to find a trade that includes Noah, the Knicks will use the NBA’s waive-and-stretch provision to release Noah sometime after September 1, league sources said.
