Really is more of a 2 but given his absolute lack of handles he got relegated to the 3 where he gives up at least 25 pounds every night despite his 6'8" frame. Beyond that he's yet another streak shooter and I think we have the market cornered on that.
Ok. Not opposed to this at all. We need someone else to play the 3 spot.

Marc Stein reported that Corey Brewer will be bought out by the Knicks. He'd be another great option at the 3. Especially given his relationship with Al. I should also add Brewer is a terrific rebounder.
He improved his shot as well. Corey Brewer would be perfect for us.

But maybe, if we are looking at Butler, we might end up with one of these guys that can help us at the 3. Mo Pete, etc.

So if Brewer (or anyone else really) were to be bought out, does anyone know how much money we'd be on the hook for if we were to sign him/them, and would that put us into luxury tax territory? Can we use our MLE, or what exactly is the deal with that? I've never understood that.

I seriously doubt that we'll add anyone but I'll be hoping for this one as much as I was hoping for the Big Z signing last year.

Oh man I'd LOVE for us to add Brewer! He's a very good defender and a solid rebounder for his position ... remember he had what 18-19 rebounds on us in a game a couple of years ago? He's talented enough that he could end up starting at SF for us with a larger than average PG (Hinrich) and SG (JJ) flanking him.
It would be the ideal pickup for us considering the relationship with him and Al, and what we now lack at the SF position. Wishful thinking indeed.
