NBA: Shannon Brown to Knicks, Cavs, or Lakers plus News, Signings, and Rumors
Shannon Brown is being targeted by 3 teams. The Knicks have offered Brown around 4 million with an a increased role in the D’Antoni system. The Lakers are trying to trade Sasha Vujacic to pave the way for Brown to be back for around 5 million plus a increased role as well. The Cavaliers on the other hand are still looking at Brown although recently acquiring Ramon Sessions but seem like the 3rd option for Brown. So where is Brown going to go? Brown wants to go back to the Lakers but has to wait till the Lakers clear some cap room in attempt to trade Sasha Vujacic. It’s a tough call here in my opinion for Brown because the Lakers signed Barnes and before you meaning that you weren’t there first choice. The playing time might not be what they say either. The Knicks on the other hand would be a pretty good fit. He possibly could be a starter or a 6th man type player and the playing time would be good as well. If he is good with just having his 2 rings and wants money now, i’d say go to the Cavaliers and make them pay up especially for trading you in the past.
