Report: Scout Clarence Gaines no longer with Knicks

Clarence Gaines Jr., a scout, is no longer with the Knicks, the team confirmed. Gaines had been an ally of Phil Jackson, the former team president, and a holdover from his tenure. Gaines was the Knicks’ vice president of player personnel under Jackson but moved to a scouting spot this past season. Jackson has given Gaines credit for convincing him to select Kristaps Porzingis with the fourth overall pick in 2015.
