It's not my speculation. Reporting from Utah media states that they have a close relationship and that Perry was a major factor.
I'm not here to defend Perry. I've speculated the Knicks are keeping him around, bare minimum, in that he's respected around the league and has some contacts, and it would be a bad look to send him packing. Minimum reason. They may think he's actually decent at what he does.
Again, to be clear, I'd prefer a younger hotshot GM\asst GM on the rise, but I can see why the Knicks\Rose might do this.
I thought the reporting was that Walt and Perry only worked together briefly? Was it confirmed they had a good relationship?
