In a blog written on a company website, Knicks GM Scott Perry described how his background as an athlete, coach and executive shapes his views and approach as general manager. He offers some insight into his thoughts on the future of the Knicks. "There are no shortcuts," he writes. "Reshaping the Knicks as a championship contender will be a step-by-step process, and along the way, the plan will demand patience, as our young core of Kristaps Porzingis, Tim Hardaway Jr., Willy Hernangómez, Frank Ntilikina and Ron Baker mature. But allow me to add a twist. I don't view my job as an either-or proposition. A general manager — especially in today's world of free agency and player movement — must always have his antenna up for all possibilities." Perry didn't mention any other Knicks in his blog, including Carmelo Anthony, whom the Knicks have hoped to trade.
