The New York Knicks have strengthened their squad this off-season by adding players like Jason Kidd, Raymond Felton and Marcus Camby. However, the front office did not want to stop acquiring talent and it has just agreed to a deal with Ronnie Brewer.
Brewer was previously a member of the Chicago Bulls and he did wonders for the team. Brewer was a player the Bulls could rely on at both the offensive and defensive end. Brewer was a lockdown defender on the perimeter and someone who could knock down an outside jumper.
I just spoke to Ronnie Brewer, who confirmed that he’s signing a one-year deal with the New York Knicks.

The Knicks have put together a very talented team despite losing players like Landry Fields and Jeremy Lin. New York replaced Lin with Felton and Kidd, and found Brewer as a replacement for Fields.
It is yet to be determined if J.R. Smith or Ronnie Brewer will be starting for the Knicks at the shooting guard position, but either way, the Knicks have put themselves as serious competition for the Boston Celtics in the Atlantic Division. To make things better, the Knicks will be receiving another talented guard midway into the season. Iman Shumpert will be making his way back from injury around January, and the Knicks will become an even more dangerous team.
