A source very close to Ronnie Brewer said the Knicks have expressed "some interest" in the six-year swingman. His team last season, the Bulls, didn't pick up his team option of $4.37 million, thereby making him an unrestricted free agent. ESPN.com

Phoenix and Chicago remain in the mix for free-agent shooting guard Michael Redd. Suns will have continued interest if Hornets, as expected, match Eric Gordon offer sheet. Bulls let go of swingman Ronnie Brewer and now will make decision by Sunday on whether to keep shooter Kyle Korver. Redd could end up as a cheaper alternative. Sulia

Brewer said general manager Gar Forman told his agent he might be re-signed at a reduced salary. "I will definitely test the market, though," Brewer said in a phone interview from his basketball camp in Arkansas. "Whatever team I end up going to, I know I'm going to have another improved year."

Watson has begun workouts after having shock wave therapy to address plantar fasciitis in both feet. His option is for $3.2 million. Korver, who quietly battled a foot injury so severe that he couldn't play much in the season-ending Game 6 loss to the 76ers and had to wear a walking boot, has a $5 million option. Brewer's is for $4.37 million. None of the three are confident they will return. Chicago Tribune

Do you see Jimmy Butler having an extended role this coming season? T.R., Montgomery, Texas. KC Johnson: That's the plan. I don't see the Bulls picking up Ronnie Brewer's team option, and I know that management remains high on Butler. What has to be remembered about Butler is, while his offense needs to improve, he always seemed unfazed by the moment he faced. That trait showed whether he guarded Carmelo Anthony unexpectedly or anybody else. And this was without summer league or an extended training camp. He'll have both this offseason. Chicago Tribune

The Magic also have to decide on the contract of J.J. Redick, who is set to earn $6.2 million. Orlando has until early July to decide, but Redick would appear likely to return to Orlando. The Chicago Bulls have three significant decisions to make on the contracts of Kyle Korver ($5 million), Ronnie Brewer ($4.4 million) and C.J. Watson ($3.2 million). Only Korver has a partial guarantee ($500k) and the Bulls are looking like a tax team next year if they keep the roster together. HoopsWorld
