Former Bulls Ronnie Brewer, Kurt Thomas enjoying life in New York

Jonathan Daniel

Former Chicago Bulls Ronnie Brewer and Kurt Thomas are both enjoying their new roles with the New York Knicks.

Former Chicago Bulls guard Ronnie Brewer and forward Kurt Thomas are both now members of the New York Knicks and are enjoying their new home. The Knicks lost to the Bulls, 93-85, in Chicago on Saturday, but they still hold the best record in the Eastern Conference at 15-5.

Brewer said he enjoyed his time in Chicago, but likes his new role with the Knicks as well. Brewer is a starter for the Knicks, averaging 6.6 points and 3.4 rebounds in 22.7 minutes per game and he has really helped improve the Knicks defense. Brewer noted a lot of similarities between the Bulls and Knicks, but said it all comes down to the same things, "you defend, you rebound, low turnovers, you're going to be in a lot of NBA games."

Thomas is the NBA's oldest active player at 40, but is still contributing in New York. Thomas played with the Bulls in the 2010-11 season. He played with the Knicks from 1998-2005 and is happy to be back, saying, "I love being back. It's like my second home."
