ESPN and USA Today report that the Rockets have reached an agreement with veteran forward Ronnie Brewer on a two-year, partially-guaranteed deal

Brewer is one of those odd players who had several good seasons, seems like he can still contribute in meaningful ways, and yet always seems to find himself falling out of rotations. Whether he possesses weaknesses unperceivable to the untrained eye, has terrible practice habits, or whatever, he found his way out of minutes in both Oklahoma City and New York the past two years.
