So how Brewer, a starter for the East-leading Bulls over the last 2 seasons, fall in #Knicks lap so cheap? More:
It's as easy as C.B.A.
Brewer, like most "middle class" players, found a free agent market dried up by late July.
He had a team option for $4.17 million this season, but the Chicago Bulls decided not to pick it up. The cost-conscious Bulls, with star Derrick Rose expected to miss most of the season with a knee injury, also passed on keeping Kyle Korver, C.J. Watson and Omer Asik.
"They really didn't want to go over the [luxury tax]," Brewer said. "I don't think it was for lack of production. We were No. 1 in the East two years in a ro. To me, talking wiht management, I think it was more of a business [decision]."
And it's one that the Knicks, who signed Brewer to a one-year, $854,389 contract, hope pays off for them.
