Kings Sign Corey Brewer

JUNE 23: The Kings have officially signed Brewer, the team confirmed today in a press release. Sacramento now has a full roster, with 15 players on standard contracts and a pair on two-way deals.

JUNE 22: Free agent swingman Corey Brewer plans to sign with the Kings, Shams Charania of The Athletic tweets.

Beginning on Tuesday, all teams will have a one-week transactions window to waive and sign players. Only players on the team’s eligible roster on July 1st will be allowed to travel to Orlando.

Brewer, who did not play in the NBA this season, had multiple offers, according to Charania. The Kings have an open roster spot and thus can add Brewer without waiving another player.

Brewer played a combined 31 games for Philadelphia and Sacramento last season and has averaged 8.7 PPG in 23.0 MPG over 814 career games. During his 24-game stint with the Kings, he averaged 4.1 PPG in 14.7 PPG.

His representatives tried in vain to find him a place to play this season prior to the suspension of play. Earlier this month, Brewer told HoopsHype he was hopeful to could find a place to play.

“We had some talks with a few teams, but nothing really happened. My agent is still working on it, so we’ll see,” he said. “I feel like I can still help a team and I feel like I have a few good years left.”

Brewer turned 34 in March and has worn the uniform of eight different teams.

    I don’t know if it is just me, but for some reason I have always liked Brewer since that one good season he had with the Rockets.

    • He definitely brings value. Doesn’t need the ball, capable of hitting the corner 3, and best of all he can guard the opposing team top Wing scorer and maybe even point guard. Valuable guy to have on your bench when needed.

        He has always been a very capable defender, but his 3-point shooting is what keeps him from finding steady work these days.

      • Capable of hitting the corner 3 might be a bit overstated as he has only hit more than 34% of his three once, and is shooting 28.4% for his career.

        • Greg you’re right. I just looked at his stats. I guess out of his 15 years, he was capable of hitting that corner three in his second season LOL.

    I thought the Mavs would of signed him to replace Lee. A decent player to have at the end of the bench.

      “Decent player to have at the END of the bench…”

      Make America Hoop Again!
