Default Brewer ceiling

Right now he gets all his buckets playing baseline and going to the rim. He strength and vertical let him get creative in the paint and keep his FG% high. Plus, I think he has the tools to be a great defender.

We have him for this year and next. He looks ready to contribute right now on both ends of the floor. Before he is a free agent, how good do you think he can get?

He looks like a potential all-star to me if he continues to improve. Just one look at his stats from last year and project them over 40 minutes shows you that.

The only thing I see holding him back is that crooked jumpshot of his.

. "Brewer is known for having an unorthodox shooting technique, the result of a childhood water slide injury." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ronnie_Brewer

For what we have on the floor, I really like Brewer using his limited shot attempts around the rim.

But, if he wants to be an all-star, he will first need to get more looks, some of them reliable jumpers.

He's going to get more looks once the roster changes after this year. But if you look at his numbers more minutes is what he needs more than anything.

I bet he gets aroudn 30 a game this year...which means Korver probably loses a few. Even being smaller than Brewer, Miles seems to be locked into that 3 position as far as learning the offense, and he'll get time until Harpring is back. Mo isn't going to crack the rotation right now either.

Think it's hard to predict the minutes. Korver could get more time and so could AK if he keeps playing well. Almond will play if Harpring and AK go down which is very possible.
