Brewer has struggled this season with the Knicks. He began the year in the starting lineup but was pulled after a prolonged shooting slump.

Brewer does not have much value on the open market, so it is unclear what the Knicks can get back for him.

According to ESPN’s Chris Broussard, the Knicks have expressed a strong interest in Phoenix’s Jermaine O’Neal.

That would seem to suggest they are concerned about the health of Marcus Camby and Rasheed Wallace.

As far as Brewer goes, he signed a veteran’s minimum contract with the Knicks over the summer with the hopes of getting a more lucrative free-agent contract in the offseason. That is unlikely to happen at this point, unless Brewer is moved to a new team and plays a different role.
