After signing him to a pair of 10-day contracts, the Kings today inked guard/forward Corey Brewer for the rest of the NBA season.
Brewer signed his initial Kings 10-day deal on February 8, has only played in three games, but his average of 8.3 points in 16.3 minutes was enough for Sacramento to keep him around.
For his NBA career, Brewer is averaging 8.9 points, 2.8 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.3 steals in 23.3 minutes per game, shooting .425 FG%, .283 3pt% and .713 FT%.
The standout game of Brewer's career was with the Timberwolves, when on April 11, 2014 he scored 51 points against the Rockets.
The Kings are 31-30 this season, which places them 9th in the West, just a few games behind the 34-29 Spurs and Clippers. The team is slightly below average in the league in both offense and defense. They did receive relatively good news today, that a scary-looking injury to Marvin Bagley wasn't as bad as it looked and will keep the young big-man out for a week or two, leading to reevaluation of his status.
