Bringing on Brand is too much of a risk. He will hurt this team tremendously financially and with his style of play.
Mike D can only succeed with a fast paced team and Elton Brand killed that style of play when he came to the Sixers. The Sixers use to be one of the best fast paced teams in the NBA and they would out hustle the Knicks constantly, once Brand came they were forced to go half-court.
Brand would only work on a team that is desperate and plays a half court system. The Knicks don't
And he would kill any chance of drawing a free agent if we can only sign one due to the fact that Elton Brand is getting paid huge bucks.
I admit I would love to get Evan Turner, this guy is a phenom Kobe type waiting to explode, but you can't kill your future financially for a draft pick unless it's a sure bet like John Wall.
The Knicks are not the right team for this.
Name a team with cap space, plays half court style, and needs a PF...then you have a suitor.
I'm sure someone will make this move.
