Ronnie Brewer

With Jimmy Butler a more affordable option, Brewer figures to be the odd man out, but he hopes his run in Chicago doesn’t end after two seasons.

“I liked the situation I was in with the Bulls,” Brewer said. “I feel like we have a great team. The chemistry was bar none compared to the other teams I’ve been on. We’ve had a lot of success, we’ve won a lot of games in the regular season and had some kind of success in the playoffs. I think everybody’s goal is to win a championship, and the Bulls, if we didn’t have injuries this year, could have been right in the mix for that. I’d love to stay with the Bulls. The fans have treated me great, the city has treated me well, and it’s a first-class organization so I’d like to stay there.”

With Richard Hamilton injured for most of the regular season, Brewer was in and out of the starting lineup. He started 43 games after starting just once in his first season with the Bulls.
