The Knicks addressed one of their biggest remaining needs yesterday when they agreed to a one-year deal with free-agent shooting guard Ronnie Brewer.
“New York Knicks lets get it!!!” Brewer tweeted yesterday afternoon.
Brewer’s agent, Henry Thomas, confirmed the move, which gives the Knicks a second veteran at the position to pair with J.R. Smith, as well as a strong perimeter defender who can play against scoring wing players at either shooting guard or small forward.
Those were two areas the Knicks needed to fill while Iman Shumpert recovers from knee surgery, with only James White, who played the last few seasons overseas, behind Smith on the depth chart before Brewer’s signing.
