REPORT: Corey Brewer snubbing multiple offers, signing with Kings

Corey brewer, Kings

Free-agent small forward Corey Brewer plans to sign a deal with the Sacramento Kings when the NBA transaction window opens on Tuesday, per Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium.

Brewer appeared in 24 games for the Kings in 2018-19. He averaged 4.1 points and 2.5 rebounds in 14.7 minutes per contest. The swingman also played for the Philadelphia 76ers.

The former Florida Gator, who won an NBA championship with the Dallas Mavericks back in 2011, chose the Kings over other teams.

The Kings will be among the 22 clubs partaking in the “bubble” games down in Orlando, Florida. The team faces an uphill climb to make the postseason, as Sacramento has to battle it out with the Memphis Grizzlies, Portland Trail Blazers, New Orleans Pelicans, Phoenix Suns and San Antonio Spurs for the final postseason spot out West.

Before games were suspended in March, the Kings had racked up 28 wins and 36 losses. The Sacramento franchise has the longest playoff drought in the NBA, as the organization hasn’t experienced postseason basketball since 2006.

Corey Brewer, who began his NBA career with the Minnesota Timberwolves and has scored 51 points in a game once, has career averages of 8.7 points, 2.8 boards and 1.5 assists in 814 NBA games.

Once the “bubble” games start, the Kings will only make the playoffs if De’Aaron Fox, Buddy Hield, Bogdan Bogdanovic, Marvin Bagley III and Harrison Barnes each play at an All-Star level.
