Sacramento acquires second round draft pick and cash considerations in exchange for Scott Perry
The Sacramento Kings have acquired a future second round draft pick and cash considerations from the New York Knicks in exchange for the release of Executive Vice President Scott Perry, General Manager Vlade Divac announced today.
Sacramento Kings Executive Vice President Scott Perry released the following statement announcing his departure.
“The Kings are forging a strong future for themselves, and while this was a tough decision, I could not pass up a promotion to become the General Manager of the New York Knicks and chance to be near my daughter in New York. I am so thankful to Vivek, Vlade, the leadership team, and the entire Kings organization for my time in Sacramento. The Kings are a hard-working team with a lot of heart and I have no doubt they are on a path to enormous success. I wish them all the luck in the world, but I have a feeling they won’t need it.”
Kings General Manager Vlade Divac released the following statement on Perry’s departure.
“We thank Scott for his time with the Kings and wish him the best of luck in his promotion to General Manager of the New York Knicks. The Kings are on a bright path ahead and I am very confident in the future of our hard-working, talented team.”
The deal to become General Manager for the Knicks is for five years. Perry was very influential in the culture shift for the Kings and will be missed. But the Kings did the right thing in allowing Perry to grant him the opportunity to take the Knicks job. Only time will tell how this will affect the Kings in the long run.
