    Ridiculous steal. I thought Beverly should get something like 4 years/$36-38 million after Shumpert got his deal. Obviously he didnt shoot the ball as well last season before he got hurt, but he still probodes them with good 3 point shooting and defense. They got a couple of nice discounts to retain both Brewer and Beverly

    Always loved his game. Still salty the heat cut him in training camp in favor of Eddie house in that first year with LeBron. We would have won that year if they didn’t cut him, b/c jj barea would have never been able to destroy us like that. It was the whole reason we drafted Norris Cole

    • Arthur Hill

      The Knicks could have topped that offer easily. Beverley must have really wanted to stay in Houston.
