After three years Scott Perry‘s experience with the New York Knicks seems to have come to an end. Leon Rose’s arrival will bring many changes to the Knicks, including the role of general manager. According to Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News, Rose already has a replacement in mind for Perry: the Philadelphia 76ers general manager Elton Brand.

Elton Brand was targeted by Rose as a candidate for Knicks GM. Brand, 41, is currently Sixers GM and is under contract next season, complicating any plans to bring him to New York. The source said Rose wanted to see if Brand had been fired after the playoffs.
