Brand Weighing “Better Offers”

Jared Zwerling of ESPN is reporting that free agent Elton Brand, who is a major target for the Knicks, is in high demand and may be out of the Knicks price range.

“As for bigs, Elton Brand has been the Knicks’ No. 1 priority since the start of free agency,” writes Zwerling. “But the 34-year-old New York native is weighing better offers — an ominous sign for the blue and orange contingent.”

I have signing Brand on top of my priority list and adding the New York native would be a major boost to the front line. Kenyon Martin is still an option as are other bigs mentioned here. But I really hope Brand decides to come to NY where he can sign for a year, play well and get a bigger deal somewhere else next year.
