I’m not sure about our cap space situation right now, but I have a target in mind: Ronnie Brewer. Simply put, this guy’s a stud.
He’s 6’7 and plays the 2 and 3 spot. Basically, he’s TA with a few more inches and a little bit of common sense. Right now he’s not getting that much attention from other teams, even though his stats are pretty good –10 points, 3 boards, and 1.8 assists per game for his career. Now here’s the catch; last season he was injured and lost a little bit of productivity. But the guy’s only 25 years old, he can fly, and the injury was a torn hamstring — nothing to worry about. Brewer can provide a spark off the bench when Ray or Paul need a rest or can wreak utter havoc in the paint alongside Rondo. Like I said, I’m not sure about our cap situation, but this guy is worth some money.
(Editor’s note: Due to the fact that Brewer is worth more than the minimum, any deal for Brewer would likely have to include either 1) Rasheed’s contract or 2) a guy like Robinson or Daniels in a sign-and-trade.)
