The New York Knicks have hired long-time Dallas Mavericks advance scout Reginald “Reggie” Johnson, according to a report. The Mavericks confirmed the report’s validity to Mavs Moneyball.

Johnson was with the Mavericks for 25 years before deciding to decamp to the Big Apple. For the last 14 years, he served as the team’s advance scout. In that role, he scouted the team’s opponents, which included providing analysis of players, personal, statistics, and play calling, among other responsibilities.

He first joined the organization in 1995 as a merchandising coordinator before moving to the scouting department to work as an assistant video coordinator. Dallas later promoted Johnson to head video coordinator for the 2002-03 season with a duel role as a scout. Three years later, the Mavericks again promoted him, this time to the position of advance scout.

In New York, Johnson will serve as pro personnel scout for the Knicks. He will work under Frank Zanin, the Knicks’ assistant general manager for pro scouting.
