Gave the Kings two additional first-round picks
The Knicks might have their new general manager.The organization is in "advanced talks" in coming to an agreement with the Kings' Scott Perry to take the position, according to USA Today Sports.Perry would directly report to Steve Mills, Cheap NBA Live Coins who is expected to become president of the organization. The Knicks are reportedly looking for a GM that won't gut the front office with his own personnel, and Perry seems to fit the mold.The Knicks and Kings are still working out terms of financial compensation to clear way for Perry, per MMOgo.com.

Perry is currently the vice president of basketball operations for the Kings. He was hired in April after he was fired from the Magic's front office and was instrumental in selecting Kentucky point guard De'Aaron Fox as the Kings' No. 5 overall pick and signing free agents Vince Carter, Zach Randolph and George Hill. He was also crucial in organizing a trade on the day of the draft that gave the Kings two additional first-round picks. The team ended up selecting North Carolina's Justin Jackson and Duke's Harry Giles.

"I think that would have been a Chris Paul to L.A. situation where they got denied at that trade," George said, via the Norman Transcript. "Yeah, I was aware of it. I would've looked forward to it, of just being in a good situation and a chance to compete for a championship. But it didn't happen. It's still fun to team up with a special talent and have a chance to compete against that team."

Paul George revealed Wednesday that he already has been in contact with Russell Westbrook as he eagerly anticipates joining this year's NBA MVP with the Thunder.George was traded to the Thunder by the Pacers, with Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis heading to Indianapolis.Like many observers, George himself conceded his surprise at landing in OKC but cannot wait to get started alongside his new teammate, who set a NBA record of 42 triple-doubles last season."I thought I was going to, like, four or five other teams that were pretty active in the trade.

When I found out it was OKC I was quite surprised, but at the same time I was happy about the trade," George said."I was thrilled, I was looking forward to it. All I wanted was a chance and an opportunity to play for something special and ultimately win a championship and right off the back I think I get that here, playing alongside Russ."We've had a lot of time to talk. Right after the trade I called him that night and we kind of talked and went over the excitement of playing alongside one another. Yesterday we got a good time, we had a lot of time to talk."It wasn't even about basketball. Just vibing together and getting to know one another and, I think, creating a friendship there."

The Brodie #OKCA post shared by Paul George (@ygtrece) on Jun 30, 2017 at 9:28pm PDTAsked about the prospect of playing with Westbrook, George said he hopes he will be able to release some of the pressure on the MVP's shoulders."For myself, just running the floor, creating space for him to operate. He's so hard to stay in front of, he's going to attract double teams night in and night out, almost every possession."So I think for myself it will be easy to space the floor and be a knock-down shooter for him. And I think the opposite. I demand double teams and [I am] a guy teams scout for and try to prep for NBA Live Mobile Coins.
