Brewer signed a 10-day contract with the Kings on Monday. Brewer didn't appear in a game during his first 10-day stint with the Kings, so he doesn't figure to play a large role in his second go-around. Once his upcoming 10-day contract expires, Sacramento will need to either sign Brewer for the remainder of the season or cut him loose.
Brewer is available to play in Friday's contest against Miami, James Ham of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. After signing a 10-day contract with the Kings on Thursday, it appears as though the veteran will make his debut with his new team during the matchup versus the Heat on Friday.
Brewer is expected to sign a 10-day contract with the Kings, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Brewer showed some life during his last stint with the 76ers, and he posted averages of 7.6 points, 2.4 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.7 steals through seven contests. He'll add a much-needed veteran presence to Sacramento's locker room and will have 10 days to prove to the Kings that he's worth a contract for the remainder of the season.
Brewer became a free agent Monday after the Sixers declined to sign him for the remainder of the season, Jon Johnson of Sports Radio 94WIP in Philadelphia reports. Brewer signed on with the Sixers midway through January on a 10-day deal, and he inked a second 10-day contract that officially expired on Monday. Per league rules, the Sixers had to either sign Brewer for the remainder of the season or release him to the free agent pool, and they've elected to do the latter -- perhaps signaling that they hope to fill a need on the wing via trade or buyout. Brewer appeared in seven games for the Sixers, making three starts and averaging 7.6 points, 2.4 rebounds and 1.7 steals in 20 minutes per game.
Brewer will come off the bench Tuesday against the Lakers. With Jimmy Butler sidelined, Brewer has started the past three games, averaging 13.3 points, 3.3 rebounds, 2.7 steals and 1.7 assists in 31.0 minutes. However, Butler is healthy and being re-inserted into the starting five, pushing Brewer to the bench. He's expected to see a reduction in workload as a result.
