But for vet min I would like this move.
He just became UFA maybe we could start him at the 2 that way we can keep J.R. as the sixth man where he's at his best.
But for vet min I would like this move.
Love his defense, but the floor spacing will be back to square 1... maybe even worse than when Fields was here. Brewer shot 27% from three point land last season, if he's coming off the bench and playing the SF position i like it but i think we would be better with a knock down shooter at the 2G.
Bringing in Brewer we are Grizzlies 2.0, but the Grizzlies can get away with having a defensive SG like tony Allen because Gasol, Gay, Conley and Randolph can all make things happen on the offensive end. Brewer + Chandler? Amazing defensive intensity but the floor spacing is worse than before and makes us easier to guard. Don't even let me bring up his poor FT shooting *face palm*
Vet Min for brewer and make him play backup SF or GTFO

OWWWW always liked his game, and he's tough on the D good cutter to the basket, decent J. overall good in the rotation to change up defense when JR on the bench for a breather. and keeps the D when Shump gets back. Brewer or Foye would be excellent.
jeremy lin is going to start sg. at least until shump returns and then he will come off the bench. jason kidd will be the starting pg
Having Kidd and Lin in the backcourt would have no stagnation.
However I believe J.R will start because he chose to sign a cheap deal and the Knicks probably told him he would start if he came cheap for one year. Plus J.R is a better outside shooter so he could spread the floor.
If we can't get Stevenson, then go for Brewer, he's really good defender.
He was used in a sign and trade for Joe Johnson and he is now on the Hawks so he is not available.
Brewer might be a good option if he sings for vet min, however he would just be there for defense and would be another landry fields type of guard that cant hit an outside shot and spread the floor which leads me to believe we won't go after him.
Jodie Meeks and other cheap 2 guards that can knock down an outside shot are realistic possibilities.
I know he's a Hawk, but we can get him by a trade, and you never know, maybe he will be bought out. Just used example of solid defender.
Idk Id rather prefer that we get someone that can spread the floor and can knock down the open 3. Randy Foye would be perfect here imo.
A source very close to Ronnie Brewer said the Knicks have expressed "some interest" in the six-year swingman. His team last season, the Bulls, didn't pick up his team option of $4.37 million, thereby making him an unrestricted free agent.
Addressing reporters in Las Vegas, Mike Woodson didn't specify which players the Knicks were still looking to sign -- they have a couple of roster spots remaining -- but he said he and Glen Grunwald are looking at a couple of players.
It's likely that with Iman Shumpert out until January -- Woodson did say he believes Shump is ahead of schedule -- the team could be in the market for a combo/shooting guard to play off the bench, especially someone who's athletic and can get to the cup. As of now, James White is the only one.
While Brewer made mid-level money last season with the Bulls, his market value has dropped. According to Nick Friedell of ESPN Chicago, "his biggest issue was that once he started playing starter's minutes in the beginning of the year, he couldn't keep up the same level of play throughout the season. Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau got frustrated by the fact that Brewer's shot had gone missing and the veteran guard's game never fully recovered."
Brewer may not be attracted to the Knicks' financial availability of likely only a veteran's minimum contract. But the team could add more money including Dan Gadzuric in a sign-and-trade with the Bulls.
Brewer would not only bring slashing, but also defense (1.4 career steals per game) and shooting. According to Friedell, "he spent all last summer during the lockout working on his jumper and that extra work paid off as he shot the ball with plenty of confidence in Richard Hamilton's absence."
The Knicks still haven't ruled out bringing back Landry Fields, but they realize how expensive he'll be at $20 million over three years. That's the amount on the Raptors' offer sheet, which the Knicks have two more days to match.

apparently there is traction to us bringing back fields. Alan hahn was saying he'd be a good trade chip with his contract in 2 years and all unno i still dont really want him. that last year is ridiculous money.
