The Knicks are meeting with Corey Brewer on Friday.

The Knicks were 16th in the NBA for percentage of points scored off turnovers and were just 28th in pace, so Brewer wouldn't be a great fit with them. Of course, they could tweak their system, which might not be a bad idea after their horrific 2014-15 season.
Jul 3 - 11:57 AM

Corey Brewer has already met with the Rockets and has meetings with the Celtics and Knicks on the horizon.

He is an unrestricted free agent and all three teams could use some wing depth. The Rockets have bigger fish to fry, so they probably won't be as aggressive on Brewer than the Knicks and Celtics. Still, Brewer blossomed from being more than just a transitional scorer.
Jul 1 - 2:22 AM

Corey Brewer is reportedly looking for a long-term deal as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

Brewer said that he will be open-minded in re-signing with the Rockets, but it's not clear at this point if Houston will be able to give him the kind of offer he is seeking. Brewer is the prototypical 3-and-D player, which is all the rage in the NBA right now, so he should get plenty of offers this offseason. It'll be interesting to see where he winds up, but in fantasy hoops, he won't be much more than a steals and 3-point specialist wherever he lands.
Jun 28 - 5:05 PM

The Rockets will try and re-sign Corey Brewer as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

The feeling is mutual as Brewer has gone on record saying that he loves playing in Houston, and hopes the team can remain together. Brewer had a nice run with the Rockets, averaging 11.9 points, 1.1 steals and 1.0 three-pointers on 42.9 percent shooting during the 2014-15 season, so he's good for some low-end value in standard leagues.
Jun 28 - 3:14 PM

Corey Brewer stated his desire to return to the Rockets next season.

"I love playing [in Houston]," Brewer said. "I hope we are back together. We made the Western Conference finals and hopefully everything works out and we are all back together next year." Brewer waived his player option as a condition the trade that sent him from Minnesota to Houston, so he's going to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason. He earned himself a nice role with the Rockets this year, but with averages of 11.9 points, 1.1 steals and 1.0 three-pointer per game on 42.9 percent shooting from the field, he's not much more than a low-end asset in standard leagues.
May 29 - 12:13 PM

Corey Brewer played just 19 minutes and hit 1-of-5 shots for three points, zero rebounds and one assist in Thursday's Game 2 loss.

Josh Smith and Brewer were awful tonight, which is probably why the Rockets are down 2-0 in the series, instead of it being tied 1-1. After scoring in double figures in the final three games against the Clippers in the last series, Brewer has scored a total of 12 points in two games against the Warriors, hitting just 4-of-12 shots.
May 22 - 12:30 AM

Corey Brewer exploded down the stretch against the Clippers on Thursday with 19 points, 10 rebounds, two assists, one block and two 3-pointers in 25 minutes.

The Clippers and Corey Brewer both scored 15 fourth-quarter points tonight. The Rockets were actually looking to Brewer in halfcourt sets, which is very unusual because of how he does so much of his scoring in transition. His perimeter defense was also as good as ever down the stretch. Expect him to play around 25 minutes on Sunday.
May 15 - 2:09 AM

Corey Brewer has been fined $5,000 for his Game 2 flop against the Clippers.

The video of Brewer's epic flop can be viewed in the link below and he definitely got his money's worth on this one. Brewer had an otherwise solid Game 2 with 11 points in 30 minutes and won't face any further discipline from the league, so he can be deployed as he normally would in fantasy games for Game 3 on Friday.
May 7 - 1:48 PM

Corey Brewer drained 9-of-15 shots to finish Sunday's Game 4 loss with 22 points, five rebounds, one steal and one block in 32 minutes off the Rockets' bench.

Brewer hit one 3-pointer and went 3-of-4 at the free throw line. He was a 26.8 percent shooter from downtown during the regular season yet he's averaging 2.0 triples on 60.0 percent shooting from deep in four games vs. Dallas. That's less surprising when you consider that Dallas gave up 9.1 triples per game to opponents this season, the highest mark of any team in the league. The Mavs were also below-average vs. opponent's bench players, so this is a tailor-made matchup for Brewer.
Apr 27 - 12:41 AM

Corey Brewer turned it on down the stretch against the Mavs on Saturday with 15 points, one assist and three 3-poiners in 24 minutes.

He killed the Mavs in the fourth quarter with all three 3-pointers coming in that frame. Brewer's versatility at both wing spots should help him get playing time in the 20s. Trevor Ariza did have some cramping issues, but there's no need to worry about him.
Apr 19 - 12:31 AM

Corey Brewer scored 20 points with five rebounds, one assist and one steal in 29 minutes on Sunday, helping Houston hold off the Pelicans for a 121-114 victory.

Brewer has been nowhere near fantasy value over the past few weeks, averaging just 7.8 points on 32.7 percent shooting, so it was nice to see him make 6-of-11 field goals and 8-of-11 free throws tonight. He's not a 3-point threat and his steals have tailed off lately, so most fantasy owners should leave him on the waiver wire.
Apr 12 - 9:38 PM

Corey Brewer scored 15 points on 7-of-14 shooting, with five rebounds, two assists, one 3-pointer, one steal, two blocks and three turnovers through 22 minutes of action.

Brewer continues to find ways to show up in the box score despite only playing 25 minutes per game for Houston. He's averaging 12.3 points, 4.9 rebounds, 1.0 steal and 0.9 three-pointers per game through the month of March, making him a quality deep league asset.
Mar 29 - 4:44 PM

Corey Brewer (oblique strain) is being listed as probable for Friday's game vs. the Timberwolves.

Brewer hasn't missed any time with his oblique strain, so there's no reason to think he won't be able to give it a go on Friday. We'll let you know if that changes.
Mar 26 - 2:33 PM

Corey Brewer (oblique strain) is probable to play Wednesday vs. New Orleans.

This is the first we're hearing of an oblique injury for Brewer, but with the Rockets listing him as probable, we're not expecting him to miss any time. Brewer has been productive through the month of March, putting in averages of 13.3 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.0 steal, and 0.9 three-pointers per game on 48.1 percent shooting from the field. He's a good guy to own in deep leagues.
