Knicks make offer for Shannon Brown

Thumbnail image for SBrown_acrobat.jpgThe Lakers are waiting to sign Shannon Brown, hoping to move Sasha Vujacic’s $5.5 million to save some money first.

The Knicks aren’t waiting, they have jumped in.

New York has made an offer to Brown, according to Ken Berger of CBSSports. They are waiting to hear back, Brown is choosing whether to go to New York, Cleveland or wait to see of the Lakers can indeed move Vujacic.

Brown is an explosive athlete who finishes with authority on the break — a very good fit for Mike D’Antoni’s system in New York. With Amare Stoudemire, Anthony Randolph and Brown, the Knicks could be their own dunk highlight reel this season. Oh, and Felton Brown would be pretty happy.

The Lakers would prefer Brown to Vujacic backing up Kobe, but they are already the highest payroll team in the league and are looking for ways to trim that a little. Moving Vujacic would be a big help, but finding a taker who can give only a non-guaranteed deal or picks back is a challenge.

    Shannon Brown makes the Knicks true post season threats. This is a better signing than Lebron James would have been in my personal opinion.

    who is this felton brown and what did he do with raymond felton? And does this have anything to do with the disappearnce of Patrick Patterson and emergence of Fredrick Patterson???

    I’m assuming you’re just saying that to try to induce angry responses?
    I’m not paying the troll toll.

    Who cares about Felton Brown? I’m more interested Kurt’s next joke about the TWolves.

    That’s because you’re an idiot…lol…sorry.
    I like the offer to but clearly Lebron would have been preferable. That is a really sill statement.

    I agree, Shannon Brown is a better fit then Price James. The king is D Wade!
