If I were Brewer, I would sign with Dallas. (Note: If I were Brewer, I would also be A) a far better defender, and B) a far worse shooter than my current self. Not to mention a lot taller and approximately the same weight.) The Mavericks have a small forward rotation featuring both Peja Stojakovic and DeShawn Stevenson, meaning there’s a real opportunity for Brewer to earn playing time. Boston, barring injury to Paul Pierce or Jeff Green, doesn’t have the same selling point.
Still, the Celtics are reportedly “focused on Corey Brewer.” Apparently, they hold ” a strong belief that he is the final piece to this championship puzzle.”
Or, he’s a potentially solid 11th or 12th man who would provide depth in the case of injury. Either way, he’s another cheap, low-risk/high-reward player. Count me in, if the Celtics sign him.
