NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — The Knicks traded swingman Ronnie Brewer to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday, opening up a roster spot that will be used to sign veteran forward Kenyon Martin.
Team president Glen Grunwald said Martin will be signed to a 10-day contract with the hopes that he could stay with the team for the remainder of the season.
He also hopes Martin can help the Knicks achieve their goal — an NBA title.
“That’s our goal. That’s what this organization is trying to do, move toward an NBA championship,” Grunwald said on a conference call Thursday. “Hopefully, we’ve made great progress on our goal. I think we have the parts to do so.”
On Friday, Grunwald reiterated on WFAN’s “Boomer & Carton” show that he believes the Knicks have what it takes to compete for the title.
