The Knicks are attempting to fix a problem that arose among opposing team scouts regarding their dissatisfaction with the new nosebleed seating at the transformed Garden, according to NBA sources.
The Knicks are responding to complaints from other club’s advance scouts who feel they can’t do their job properly in the current seating in the brand-new 300-level press box. Advance scouts evaluate their clubs’ upcoming opponents, attending the opponents’ games and charting their plays.
In the past, the advance scouts were placed on the floor. But, in the new Garden, the scouts were put upstairs.
