Star Euroleague Point Guard flew to New York on Tuesday to meet with the New York Knicks, the NY Post reported. Brown is a talented scorer who uses his athleticism and ball-handling skills to get his shots off. Brown was the best scorer in Europe last season, and would be a welcome addition to a team desperately seeking a 3rd PG to fill out the roster. More to come, stay tuned.
After taking a successful gamble on a 28 year-old Euroleague player last season, the Knicks appear ready to do the same thing this year. Chris Copeland has taken his dreadlocks and his (under-utilized) talents to Indiana, but Bobby Brown has emerged as a strong candidate to be a Knick. There have been multiple reports that Brown has been working out with the Knicks and that he is a very strong candidate to be signed to a minimum contract before the summer is over. The 28 year-old point guard has been one of the best players in Europe during his time overseas, and would be a low-risk, high-reward option to fill the 3rd point guard spot on the depth chart for New York. Brown is a natural scorer, a good ball-handler, and an explosive athlete. Signing him would be an excellent move by the Knicks.
