Free agent forward Elton Brand could soon be heading home. With Brand available on the open market, the New York Knicks are reportedly working on an offer that could bring Brand back to his home state.
From Jared Zwerling of ESPN New York:
League source: #Knicks are preparing to make offer to Elton Brand. Brand is from New York, wants to join winning team. Mutual interest high.

The Knicks are expected to place Amar’e Stoudemire on a minute limit next season, so adding Brand would provide them with some quality depth at the position. Bringing Brand in to a front court that already includes Stoudemire and Andrea Bargnani in the rotation can only help the Knicks chances of making a deep playoff run in 2014.
