ronnie brewer Ronnie Brewer Junior was a low key signing for the New York Knicks this off-season, but a HUGE piece of the puzzle towards the ultimate goal. Winning isn’t a hope, but a necessity at this stage. Ronnie will be a far larger piece than people recognize and we will tell you why. Ronnie Brewer Jr. born in Portland, Oregon in 1985, attended the University of Arkansas and was selected 14th overall by the Utah Jazz. He is listed at 6’ 7” 227lbs. He is a SG/SF and has very good defensive skills. He played 4 years in Utah and eventually took over the starting SG position. In his second and third years, he averaged double figures, however in his 4th year he declined in health due to injuries and only played in only 53 games. He was traded to Memphis in the 2010 season for the stretch run for the playoffs, but Ronnie had a hamstring injury that limited his playing time and eventually parked him on the Memphis bench. He only played in 5 games with Memphis and became a free agent at the end of the year. Brewer signed with the Bulls in the summer of 2010 and was a key bench player backing up SG/SF positions. His defensive intensity and his size made him a favorite amongst Head Coach Tom Thibodeau who  preached defense at all costs. He became the perfect bench player averaging 22 minutes a game and using his defense to disrupt opposing teams’ stars. For financial reasons, Chicago declined his option in the summer of 2012 making the defensive player a free agent.

Stephon Marbury Sends Unsolicited Email to GQ, With Photos of Statue in China

Say this for Stephon Marbury: He seems to be in a good place. Marbury, who started 74 games for the New York Knicks in the 2006-07 season only to have his career abruptly end just two years later at the age of 31, has managed to stay involved in the game that brought him fame and fortune. Unlike many other former NBA players who finish out their careers in Europe, Marbury headed...

Jason Kidd Might Still Be Capable of Helping Carmelo Anthony, Amare Stoudemire Coexist With Knicks

At 39 years old, Jason Kidd probably is not looking to become the next great New York Knicks point guard. Eighteen years into his NBA career, Kidd would be content to merely help the Knicks' apparently incompatible stars find a way to play together. And that could make him the perfect conductor of an otherwise dysfunctional orchestra. The Knicks were a mess last season, as they...

Veteran Point Guard Mike Bibby’s Time with New York Knicks Likely Over

In the most obvious of New York Knicks moves, Mike Bibby’s time with the Knickerbockers is likely over. Bibby is 34 years old and is too under productive to be brought back to a roster with three point guards that are locks to make the team. He only averaged 2.6 points, 1.5 rebounds, 2.1 assists in just 39 regular season games with the Knicks last season. Needless to say, Bibby is...

New York Knicks Keeping Baron Davis Around

After suffering a devastating right knee injury — a torn ACL and MCL — during this last season’s playoffs, 33-year-old point guard Baron Davis won’t be re-signed by the New York Knicks. It’s actually very likely that Davis will miss the entire 2012-13 season all together. However, Davis has very visibly hung around the Knicks’ players and organization all summer. He...

New York Knicks’ Carmelo Anthony: A Man On an Island or a Team?

The Knicks can sign players and trade players, but the team will sink or swim with the game of Carmelo Anthony at the helm. I’m not saying he has to do it all, I actually think he needs to do less. Having trust in his teammates is über important. Not many stars can have that trust. Speaking of trust, Alan Iverson was one of those players that had a hard time trusting his teammates...

Picture: Raymond Felton still getting lean; works out with former teammate
