    Default Knicks sign Ronnie Brewer

    Seth Rosenthal ‏@seth_rosenthal
    RT @daldridgetnt: Knicks continue to build backcourt, agreeing 2 terms with ex-Bull Ronnie Brewer on one-year deal, per source.

    Ronnie Brewer is a tough guard and Thibbs had the Bullies playing D so he should bring that attitude to the KNICKS. I like it

    He's basically a welfare version of LeBron James.

    Sweet! Bring the D back to NYC! Not gonna add any spacing for us WHATSOEVER, but he can run out on teams in a huge way and get stops.

    Very interested to see what'll eventuate with Brewer adding to our D. I've been moaning like mad for years to bring the D back.

    Nice signing, but with changes come questions.

    Will Melo be getting all the touches?

    Will he burn out?

    Is Woodson all in on defense first?

    Can we rely on STAT as a primary 2nd?

    Can Ray develop a consistent outside game? He's gonna HAVE to.

    Is anyone else concerned about our shooting in the starting lineup?

    This is what I wrote about Brewer in the SG thread.

We need a player like him to guard Kobe, Wade, Lebron etc, especially with Shumpert out.
    Wow our defense is going to be awesome this season. Not worried about his offense, we have enough of that. And it's not like Landry was doing that much better. We'll need a defender like him with Shump out.

    I really thought we needed a catch and shoot guy to spread things out. Oh well, can't complain if he brings the D.

    Looking at the way things unfolded over the last 14hrs, the decicion to sign Brewer must have been tied to the inability to get Foye.

    So close....

    I hear you, but looking back at how many wide open Jumpers Fields passed up or took and missed, replacing him with someone that can knock 'em down seemed the uptmost.

    Does he atleeeast have a decent FT%.... Just checked ..NoPE!!
    Their numbers are strangely identical so from a value perspective..nice pick up but all in all looks like Fields part 2...and I didn't like that kid.

    End of the day, should be a nice Shump stop gap so there's that. If he brings the D I'm cool.

    when the Griz acquired Brewski from Utah in mid-season 2010, he was coming off one of his best years:

    "Ronnie Brewer is a proven, winning basketball player in the NBA," ... "He has been a starter for a perennial playoff team in Utah and has had the benefit of playing for one of the all-time great coaches in Jerry Sloan. Ronnie is an intelligent, versatile player who is an excellent ball handler and defender. We are excited to acquire this outstanding, former Arkansas Razorback." Brewer, a 6-7, 227-pound swingman, has averaged 9.5 points, 3.4 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.61 steals on 49.5 percent shooting in 31.4 minutes in 53 games (all starts) this season in Utah. The 24-year-old posted career highs in points (13.7) and rebounds (3.7) last season, while ranking first in the NBA in steals-per-turnover ratio (1.87) and seventh in field goal percentage (.558). He also leads the league in steals-per-turnover ratio this season (1.67). The four-year NBA veteran (2006-10) owns career averages of 10.5 points, 2.9 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.46 steals on 52.3 percent shooting in 26.4 minutes in 266 career games (223 starts) with the Jazz, who selected him with the 14th overall pick in the 2006 NBA Draft. He was also selected to play in the 2008 T-Mobile Rookie Challenge at All-Star Weekend in New Orleans, where he scored 13 points for the Sophomore team. Noted for his defensive abilities, Brewer has ranked in the NBA's Top 10 in total steals in each of the last two seasons, placing sixth in 2008-09 (138) and 10th in 2007-08 (129). This season, Brewer is tied for 12th in the league in total steals (85) with the Los Angeles Lakers' Kobe Bryant and the Charlotte Bobcats' Raymond Felton and 13th in steals per game.

    "Ronnie adds depth and defensive presence on the perimeter..."

    he won't be chucking shots, he'll be fighting down low on the offense and laying down the law on Dee.
    I always liked Brewer's game, he's the ultimate scrappy player who always seemed to get the
    offensive rebound, and the ball would gravitate towards him, ala David Lee.

    sounds like a New York Knickerbocker to me. great pickup.
    happy brews
