Corey Brewer
SG/SF, 6’9, 186lbs, 31 years old, 10 years of experience

Amazinglydurable but increasingly unproductive. Brewer plays decent if not stand-out defence, and continues to run at every opportunity. But he still cannot shoot save for the occasional random hot night, still tries anyway, and still cannot handle against any kind of pressure. Plays hard still, but more Ronnie Brewer than C.J. Miles, and not trending in the right direction.

Player Plan: One year and $7,579,366 remaining. He will not have trade value as a player, and the expiring contract will not be more useful anywhere else than here. May as well let him play it out, then, with potential for a mid-season buyout.

   Tax Payers, Trade Kickers, And Other Deadline Day Bookkeeping

Sacramento's main cap space rival was Minnesota, who used almost all of theirs in the Melo trade. Their role in that deal saw them change from the mediocre production and limited upside of the struggling Corey Brewer, to the substantial upside yet volatile production of Anthony Randolph. Their cost for making this perceived upgrade in prospects was taking on what's left of Curry's salary, and more importantly, taking on his cap hit. Before the deal, Minnesota had $12,366,964 in cap room, but after shedding Brewer's $3,703,472 and Koufos's $1,298,640, while adding Randolph's $1,965,720 and Curry's post-trade kicker $11,530,592, that number quickly dropped to only $3,873,394.

   Sham's 2010 NBA Draft Night Recap, Part 1

After last year's draft, it's refreshing to see David Kahn choose somebody who can't dribble. It's not advisable in a man slated to play guard, though. If Corey Brewer can play shooting guard full time, Johnson slides in nicely as a rebounder and athlete who is able to create his own (jump)shot; however, in spite of all his improvements last year, Brewer can't really do this. And even if he could, it's not optimal.

Note: Non-US teams that the player has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League split in Japan.
