Iman Shumpert may return soon
There isn’t a greater team player in the NBA than the Knicks’ Ronnie Brewer, his former Bulls teammates will attest.
That will be put to the test soon if the slumping Brewer’s role changes as expected when Iman Shumpert returns to the lineup. Shumpert, who underwent offseason knee surgery, is edging closer to his season debut and could be cleared for practice after the Knicks return from their West Coast trip.
The way Brewer is bricking it, Shumpert should slide easily into the starting lineup in the Knicks’ three-guard alignment that has featured Brewer with Raymond Felton and Jason Kidd.
