As the Knicks struggle to find their identity heading into the NBA playoffs, the last thing on New York's mind is Corey Brewer.
Brewer came to the Knicks from Minnesota as part of the trade that brought Carmelo Anthony to the Big Apple. He spent all of about three seconds on the roster before the Knicks waived him at his own request.
At the time, the Knicks were not able to guarantee Brewer minutes, and thought the decision to waive him was best for both parties.
Well, that could turn out to be wrong.
As New York prepares for the playoffs, Brewer is sporting a Dallas Mavericks uniform, which is a shame because he could have been an integral part of the Knicks system.
Brewer had the potential to really make an impact on the Knicks, a team that is pining for someone else on their roster to step up and make a contribution.
New York knows that Amar'e Stoudemire, Chauncey Billups and Anthony cannot bring the Knicks deep into the playoffs by themselves. And while Shawne Williams, Toney Douglas and Landry Fields have all stepped up in one way or another, the Knicks will really regret waiving Brewer come playoff time.
