Reports: Wolves sign Corey Brewer to three-year deal
The Minnesota Timberwolves have been busy in free agency, and they're adding more as they're reportedly adding Corey Brewer.
The Minnesota Timberwolves have been busy in free agency, and they're adding more.
This would be Brewer's second stint with the Wolves as he spent the first three-and-a-half seasons in Minnesota before heading to Dallas as part of the three-team Carmelo Anthony trade. He spent last season with the Nuggets.
Brewer gives the Wolves more backcourt depth and a quality wing defender to use in some intriguing lineups. However, $5 million a year for a below average shooter that mostly just plays defense? Seems like a lot. Especially for a team that just spent big on bringing in a shooting guard he'll play behind in Kevin Martin.
The Wolves also just re-signed Chase Budinger to a sizable deal. With Ricky Rubio and Alexey Shved in place, Minnesota's backcourt is getting a bit crowded. Brewer is more of a combo guard/forward player, so he will likely see a lot of time at small forward, replacing the likely departing Andrei Kirilenko.
Brewer, 27, averaged 12.1 points and 2.9 rebounds while shooting 29.6 percent from 3.
