Corey Brewer, Knicks Reportedly Reach Agreement On Buyout; Celtics Interested In Swingman

In a surprising move, the New York Knicks are expected to buy out Corey Brewer, just a few days after acquiring the swingman in a deal from the Minnesota Timberwolves as part of the Carmelo Anthony deal, this according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

The agreement would make Brewer, a guard/forward in his fourth season out of Florida, a free agent. Stein's sources tell him that the Spurs, Thunder, Mavericks and Celtics are all interested (Boston previously tried to get Brewer before the Melo trade went down). 

Brewer, who is on the books for $3.7 million this season, will be a free agent next year.

Brewer is a defender only at the NBA level; his shooting is beyond atrocious (with a career True Shooting percentage of .476) and as a result, he scores far less than most utility wings. He fell behind Michael Beasley, Wesley Johnson and Martell Webster in the wing rotation this season, and was cast off to New York, where the Knicks have apparently decided that Carmelo Anthony, Shawne Williams and Bill Walker are all the wing defense they need.
