According to ESPN’s Marc Stein, Corey Brewer is still weighing his options for the future after being waived by the New York Knicks today.
Stein tweeted earlier this afternoon:
“Brewer in process of weighing it all after Monday night recruiting calls from Popovich, Doc R and Cuban. Lakers, to date, have NOT called”
However, CSN’s A. Sherrod Blakely more recently tweeted that despite the C’s strong interest, Dallas may be Brewer’s most likely landing spot.
“Right now the Celtics are focused on Corey Brewer. There’s a strong belief that he’s the final piece to this championship puzzle.”
“Competition is very tight for Brewer. I think the Mavs are going to be the team to beat for his services.”
The Knicks also waived Keleena Azubuike, who has not played this season due to injury. If healthy, Azubuike could be an interesting addition for the Celtics. He expects to return soon from major knee surgery and it was reported that he was surprised by this decision. Ultimately though, I don’t think this is a guy the Celtics take a chance on.
The Miami Heat cut Carlos Arroyo, making the signing of Mike Bibby pretty much inevitable.
In a weird move, the Washington Wizards bought out Al Thornton. I wonder if the Celtics would have had any interest, although it’s meaningless to think about at this point as Thornton appears set to sign with Golden State.
