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.
With teams starting to fill out their rosters, here are the rumors surrounding the Knicks, as well as some news from the past few days
– When asked about Nate Robinson, Glen Grunwald said the Knicks are still exploring options at Point Guard. The Knicks have interest in Robinson. Nate also has interest in a return but the fact that the Knicks can only give him 1.4 million could prevent a deal from getting done.
