    Default Knicks interested in Bobby Brown for PG spot

    Knicks worked out former NBA'er Bobby Brown who has been tearing it up in the Euroleague. Scored 41 points in this game. Is he one of those Euroleague gems like Prigoni and Copeland or just another NBA washout like Flight White.

    Can shoot the 3, looks to drive, dishes to cutters, looks good to me. The only problem with the video is that it shows nothing on his D.

    Him and Houston could have a great relationship together.

    Looks like a good pickup for 3rd string PG....lets hope he plays decent defense....also looks like he'd be a decent backup SG

    The only article I could find which mentions defense states that:

    "He has the quickness, footwork and length make him a very good pressure defender despite his lack of ideal height. when he puts his mind to it, which unfortunately he does not on a consistent basis. He can generate steals and cause fast break opportunities and has very good lateral quickness."

    Seems like with the right coaching and as a third string or even fourth string PG option, he might be coaxed into improving his defensive effort. The video above shows he can definitely pass and not just score. He also seems to understand pace, flow, and has floor vision. Utterly reasonable to bring him to camp and let him compete with Toure Murry and others. I assume we could give him a vet min contract and then waive him later anyway, if we had to?

    I liked what I read about him in this article. You know at 28 coming to the NBA he probably knows that this would be his last chance on the big stage and he would be motivated to maintain his defensive focus in the limited minutes he gets.

    He's probably more NBA ready than Toure Murry, we have 15 roster spots, stashing Murry in the D-League and signing Brown is what I would do if we can't get Aaron Brooks.

    Who cares this guy is a Bum....meanwhile the Clippers are closing on a 2yr deal with Byron Mullens for peanuts. We're chasing guys like Bobby Brown....(everyone wants to play in NYC right?) when supposedly Felton is so much better than Jeremy Lin and Pablo makes Melo so much better a player when he's on the court?

    What I don't understand why haven't we explored trading Felton to the Nuggets(again yep) for Andre Miller since they have been looking to move him? That would shed Felton's salary off the 2015 books.

    Before any of you crack on Richard Pryor's age...look the guy has only missed 5-6gms his entire 15yr NBA career. We probably could have asked for Miller and Stone(although Masai signed him early on) for Felton and cash. If Grunwaldo wasn't MIA and more of a savvy GM he probably could have got a deal like this completed.

    I've been saying that since his college days. He looks even more like him now that he's older.

    Why is Bobby Brown a bum? The only knocks on him in the past have been defense and passing, and he appears to have improved in both areas, most dramatically in the passing, floor vision, and pacing areas. Is he Chris Paul? No. But as a third string PG with upside, we could do a whole lot worse.

    That said, we should look at Aaron Brooks, Toure Murry, and others during camp as well. I cannot imagine even if we give Brown a guaranteed contract for more than just training camp now, that we cannot just waive him later anyway if we decide on someone else.

    Also, until we sign Kenyon Martin and CJ Leslie (neither of which are guaranteed yet) we only have 10 roster spots locked down, so there is room for two PGs and three bigs still. Assuming we do sign both, then one PG and two bigs makes more sense, but is not required.

    Bobby Brown: "He over-dribbled last year at summer league, and [NBA insiders] made fun of him because he was kind of clueless with the ball."

    If we're interested in rubbish, scrubbish, trash(such as Bobby Brown).....then let it chase us and not the other way around. Hearing of workouts such as Raja Bell and Bobby Brown just shows the extent of how sad the state of affairs are.

    Look at how many players have declined signing here that we wanted this summer...

    Brand
    Brooks
    Allen
    Delfino
    Barnes
    Mayo
    Ellis
    Bellineli
    Brewer
    Bynum(Will)
    Dorrell Wright
    Brandan Wright
    Calderon
    Watson

    Look we have to start carrying ourselves as a dignified and prestigious franchise. We have to start acting as if this is the Premiere place to play, although reality may suggest otherwise. There is a saying in life that says "perception is reality." The problem with us we're carry on business as if reality is reality.

    We don't know how to massage the environmental climate to make it appear as if it's different. Everyone involved in the NBA, sees us as ultra transparent and vulnerable and worthy to be talked bad about. We give them ammo to do so, by the decisions we make.

    Nothing will change, until we change.

    Word is the Bucks are at an impasse with Jennings would you trade Felton for Jennings?
