The Knicks have not attracted several league stars this summer, such as Kevin Durant, Cairo Irving and more. However, despite the failed free agent time, the Knicks' administration still believes it was right to switch Perez to Dallas Mavericks, Berman said.
Earlier, the New York leadership announced that the unit had changed Latvian to open more opportunities for two top contracts this summer. The Knicks still believe the team's only option was to replace Perez.

The New York Knicks wanted to attract league star Kevin Durant to his teammate, who acknowledged the Knicks were never in the spotlight.
"In the case of leaving Golden State, the goal has always been for the Nets. They have creative club leadership and I like what they do here. The basketball that the team is showing is captivating."
The Knicks couldn't delight their fans with ambitious deals over several successive summers. The last big free-trade agreement came in 2010, when Amarma Stadamair was added to the lineup.
