right now we have about 41 mil on the books for 2012.... if the cap is 58 we have about 17 mil... enought for dwill,cp3 or howard....
we would have to release td 2 mil or we would be at 43 mil...
i think the key is to get a one year deal with one of the bigs.. which will be hard to do.. even if we sign a player to the mid level exception..
it will be for more than a year and will cost us 2012 cap space unless we trade that player... like what riley did with beasley.. i think we keep billups...offer dandr jordan the full MLE.. and make a run at it...and if we know that we can get a 2012 FA.. teams will be lining up to take DA off our hands..
i think that will be the best scenario for us
I would've said Brewer should've probably gotten a chance.
Would've thought he may attack us tonight in Dallas and made us look bad.
But he didn't get a minute last night and chances are he's gonna also rot on that bench like he would've in NYK.
So, bottom line, I'm glad we don't have him cause I'd rather see Roger Mason, Anthony Carter and Bill Walker continue to do the little things they've done for us in the past couple of weeks instead of this future ex-NBAer and future Euroleague benchwarmer taking up space on our bench.

OK, so I learned much more about Brewer tonight. Seems he was picked 7th (a lottery pick) had 14 teams after him. 3 of the teams were Boston, Dallas & Spurs.
Knowing all this info this was a bad move. No other way to slice it.
We should have kept Brewer and not have signed Brown or cut Rautins instead of Brewer. Brewer is good, would have been an excellent backup for Melo in the playoffs.
It seems ya'll didn't hear last night when it was explained that Brewer's agent asked the Knicks to buy him out cause the guy wanted to play elsewhere. He's basically anti-Knick and I'm glad he's not here.

Just read an article that Brewer said he was really excited to come to NY, but it was obvious after the first week that D'Antoni wasn't going to play him, so he asked to be bought out....
Before the game, Brewer told The Post he would have loved to stay in New York if coach D'Antoni wanted him.
"You could tell [I wasn't going to play]," Brewer said. "I had been there a week. I didn't play one game, then was inactive for two games, so I kind of felt it was best to go somewhere else and have a chance to play.
"I would've loved to have a chance," he said. "I felt great coming to New York."
He played a bit part in what was overall a dominant Mav's performance. You're telling me if he was on our team last night he would have shut down Terry or something? I think he would have looked just as bad as Jeffries did; a guy we were raving about before last night.\
Also, the guy seems really small. We needed bigger bodies not smaller ones.
Guy's a genius. Some of the top teams in the league want him, but they don't know jack. It's not like the Celts and Spurs championships mean something....
