“A lot of different teams were reaching out to me and I was weighing my options,” Brewer said to HOOPSWORLD. “At the end of the day, it didn’t come down to money. It came down to the best situation for me, as a person and as a player. I wanted to go somewhere I could win and have success. I wanted to go to a situation where playing basketball would be fun and I would enjoy doing it. You can go to a team that’s not as a good so that you thrive a little bit more, even though you’re losing, but that’s not fun to me. I wanted to go to a place where I could win.” “From day one, the Knicks were on me and my agent,” Brewer said. “I had some relationships with people in the organization. Darrell Walker, one of the assistant coaches, and Damon Jones, who works in the front office, both went to Arkansas and they reached out to me. Coach Woodson reached out to me and the GM reached out to me as well. I felt like they really wanted me and I was an important target for their team, maybe the missing piece for them to be successful. It felt good to have the coaches and management reach out to me and recruit me.” HoopsWorld

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."
