News broke Tuesday night that Knicks GM Scott Perry would be leaving the franchise this summer. According to Newsday’s Steve Popper, the club may be looking for internal figures to succeed him.
“Gersson Rosas would be a worthy successor to Perry, having already been a visible presence since he arrived with a vague title: senior basketball advisor. Rosas worked 16 seasons in the front office of the Houston Rockets, much of that time spent working with current Philadelphia 76er president of basketball operations Daryl Morey, briefly serving a three-month stint as general manager of the Dallas Mavericks, and then leaving to Minnesota as president. of basketball operations for the Timberwolves. Rosas, 44, was a constant on the sideline with the Knicks last season after being the primary contact in negotiations as the Knicks tried to clinch a deal for Donovan Mitchell last summer,” Popper said.
