Report: Shannon Brown will pick Lakers over Knicks

Shannon Brown is "leaning" toward returning to the Lakers to go for a "three-peat", according to his agent Mark Bartelstein. Brown is expected to make his final decision on Thursday. The free agent has also been considering the Knicks.

"The Knicks did a great job selling Shannon on everything and their vision for him," Bartelstein said. "They did a great job, but the chance to go back and win a third championship for the Lakers is a tough thing to pass up. He’ll make a final decision [today]."

HoopsVibe’s Very Quick Call: You can’t blame him for staying put.
 
Shannon Brown is young, so he’ll sacrafice everything to remain with the Los Angeles Lakers: money, minutes, shots, and playing time.
 
After all, he has a chance at three-peating in Los Angeles, while the New York Knicks will struggle to secure one of the last playoff spots in the Eastern Conference.
 
So the Lakers will likely win out on the Knicks. For now.
 
In a few years, Brown will have to take the largest contract available. And the new Collective Bargaining Agreement could hamper the Lakers’ ability to keep valuable supporting pieces.  
 
However, the Staples Center faithful will be treated to another year of Brown’s aerial antics.
