The Dallas Mavericks announced today that they have signed forward Corey Brewer. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Brewer (6-9, 188) was originally the seventh overall pick in the 2007 NBA Draft by the Minnesota Timberwolves. He holds career averages of 9.1 points, 3.3 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 25.7 minutes in 232 career games (147 starts) with Minnesota.

Brewer is more athletically gifted and younger, but this move kind of reminds me of the Mavs using guys like Andrian Griffin, Devean George, and drafting Maurice Ager right after Wade tore them up in 2006. Guys who provide defense, but not the most offensively potent players. None the less, it provides Dallas with more depth, and if Butler comes back that's not a bad SF rotation at all.
Adrian Griffin and Greg Buckner, Kobe stoppers for 3 quarters; Vince, Pierce, and those type of guys too. Nelson just never was smart enough to leave them in in the 4th quarters though and those guys would just erupt. Every time!
