ORLANDO - The New York Knicks have waived swingman Corey Brewer, who was part of the three-team, 13-player Carmelo Anthony trade last week.

The Knicks made the move Tuesday, exactly a week after the Anthony deal was finalized. They also signed forward Jared Jeffries and claimed forward Derrick Brown off waivers.

Brewer never played for New York after he was acquired from the Minnesota Timberwolves for Anthony Randolph and Eddy Curry's expiring contract.

The fourth-year pro was averaging 8.6 points and 2.7 rebounds in 56 games for the Timberwolves before he was traded. He has played all 232 of his NBA games with Minnesota.

Jeffries spent three-plus years with the Knicks before they traded him to Houston last season. The Rockets waived the 6-foot-11 forward last week.

Brown played 98 games over the last two seasons with the Bobcats, averaging 3.4 points.
