The New York Knicks were unable to lure Shannon Brown from L.A., as the four-year veteran re-signed with the Lakers for two years and $4.6 million. SB Nation Los Angeles has more on the story.
As my colleague Ed Valentine pointed out yesterday, Brown was leaning heavily toward returning to the Lakers despite the Knicks’ offer of more money and more playing time. However, the second year of Brown's deal is a player option, so there's a chance he could hit the free-agent market again next summer. If the Knicks still like him, they can once again try to sign him at that time.
