Sources are reporting that the Knicks will sign 28 year-old guard Shannon Brown.
Brown provides perimeter scoring, solid defense, and incredible athleticism. He is an exciting player and a pretty good one, too. The one problem with this signing? Brown is more of a shooting guard than a point guard, and the Knicks biggest need right now is at the point. Still, Brown can handle the ball a bit, and he can certainly guard opposing point guards on the defensive end, which is where New York’s PG’s have been the most lacking so far. Signing somebody like Jimmer Fredette would have been more fun, but this is a nice move.
