    Say all you want about the Knicks letting Jeremy Lin go, but they've been smart about their money this offseason. They've landed financial steal after financial steal. Jason Kidd (about $3 million per year), Marcus Camby (about $4 million per year) Raymond Felton (about $3 million per year) and now Ronnie Brewer (about $1.4 million for one year). In fact, during Brewer's career in the NBA, his salary went up each season from 2006 to 2012, the last in which he made $4.7 million with the Bulls.

    Agreed with previous posters, sign K mart and we are cooking and have hit a home run this offseason. At times Brewer will play SF and share the court with JR & Felton, so lack of offense won't be a problem. It's very rare to see STAT & Melo both on the bench at the same time so basically we have 2 offensive weapons on the floor at any given time.

    Im loving this signing. This offseason has been amazing sure we lost Lin but that pales in comparison to the amount of depth we've added. Even then I think we didn't downgrade at PG I think feltip will play at the same level he was in his first NYK go around.

    This potential (and expected) starting 5 of ; felton, Brewer, melo, stat and Chandler is not only a defensive monster but also a well rounded offensive lineup. Great offseason and Grunnies the real deal fellas.

    I'm still a little salty about how the whole Lin Fiasco played out but Brewer is a solid signing. He can start at the 2 now and back up Melo at the 3 for minutes when Shump comes back. Grunnie is doing a good job.

    I was pissed at first but who cares man. We won't have any locker room issues and we still upgraded the PG spot considerably from last year.

    Yeah if you stop and think about what the Knicks were able to get for 1 Mini-MLE, a couple of second round picks, and bench players it is pretty amazing.

    The beauty of it is, is that Lin is still a big question mark. Showed early signs of being injury prone and once scouting reports came out, he wasn't as effective. Can't wait to see Brewer/Shump lock him down, it's a solid pick that he doesn't blow up and become something big. And we shall have 3 years of gloating over that fact.

    Now all we need is Kenyon Martin and were set

    I think that this is a great signing, but we were set on getting an offensive scorer when Melo sits on the bench when the off season began & we failed to do so. Did you guys see how bad our offense flowed when he even rested for a minute?

    No complaints though. GO KNICKS!!

    Who would score in that lineup though? If you replace Melo with Brewer that would be a perfect balance of scoring and defense.

    I'd rather have Chandler at C then put Melo at PF.

    I believe the issue we had with the offense while Melo was sitting was due to the point guard. With Kidd, Felton and Prigioni on the roster I don't see JR playing 1 versus 5 anymore. The ball will flow way better and people will move instead of just standing around.
