Is Scott Perry A Good GM? Let’s Find Out Together!

Kevin Durant is going to sign with the Brooklyn Nets, along with Kyrie Irving and Durant’s tagalong pal, Deandre Jordan.

So now that Plan A (also known as “The plan where the GM really doesn’t have to do anything except let the star player choose his team”) has flopped, we get to finally see what kind of GM Scott Perry is.

If he signs a bunch of one-year deals, he’s probably just another dumb Knick decision-maker (just not as dumb as Phil Jackson, who was the worst).

If he doesn’t, then the Knicks might finally have a good GM.

Let us all find out together as free agency officially begins!
