Bruce Brown revealed this week that the Knicks were the only other team he met with before deciding to sign with the Pacers, writes Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News. Brown was one of the most sought-after free agents on the market after helping the Nuggets win the NBA title. Several teams, including New York, were hoping to get it with their midlevel exception, but Indiana blew away its competitors with a two-year, $45 million offer.
“The Knicks were the first match. I think we had others lined up, but we didn’t make it there”, said Brown, who added that he was heavily recruited by Pacers star Tyrese Haliburton.
