According to CBS, Brown has received an offer from the Knickerbockers and is now awaiting the Lakers’ next move: “The Knicks have extended an offer to Shannon Brown and are waiting to hear whether the Lakers’ free-agent guard will take it or wait for L.A. to make room to re-sign him by trading Sasha Vujacic, two people with knowledge of the situation told Thursday. Brown, 24, played all 82 games for the champion Lakers last season and is weighing whether to join Ray Felton in the Knicks’ revamped backcourt or give the Lakers time to clear the room needed to re-sign him. The Lakers, as usual, are well into the luxury tax. So moving Vujacic’s $5.4 million salary for next season would ease the tax hit associated with keeping Brown. Brown’s electrifying transition game would be a huge asset in coach Mike D’Antoni’s up-tempo system, and Brown would have a good chance of winning a starting job after starting only seven games for the Lakers last season.”
