The Sacramento Kings are looking to make some moves as the NBA Free Agency period begins, and one guy they might be looking at is Corey Brewer.
Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee reports the the Kings could target Brewer, who new General Manager Pete D’Alessandro knew from his days in Denver.
Brewer, a forward who played for the Denver Nuggets last season, averaged 12.1 points and 2.9 rebounds per game, playing all 82 games. However, he shot just 29 percent from beyond the arc, and is not a bona fide starter.
A seven-year veteran, Brewer is averaging 9.5 points and shooting over 41 percent from the floor over his career.
The Kings need an upgrade at small forward in the worst way, as they currently are stuck with John Salmon, Travis Outlaw, and James Johnson, who is currently a free agent.
However, Brewer does not look like the answer, as he started just two games last season (h/t John Dickinson). He did average 24.4 minutes per game, so he would be nice to bring in off the bench, but right now the Kings need a starter.
One player who would be a dream acquisition would be Andre Iguodala, who Brewer backed-up last season in Denver. According to USA Today’s Sam Amick, the Kings are “in the mix” for Iggy.
But then again, there’s this from a league source, speaking to Jones:
Why would he go there? They can’t win now.
