With hopes of improving their wing depth, the Houston Rockets are close to agreeing with veteran swingman Ronnie Brewer on a contract.
Details of the contract have yet to be released, though given Houston’s hefty payroll the deal shouldn’t be worth much more than the veteran minimum and be a year in length, possibly with a second year player option.
Per ESPN’s Marc Stein:
Houston Rockets, I’m told, are wrapping up a deal with free agent Ronnie Brewer
Brewer split last season between the New York Knicks and Oklahoma City Thunder, though experienced his best years as a member of the Utah Jazz where he was one of the better bench players in the league.
After leaving Utah in 2009-10, Brewer has bounced around and struggled compared to the consistent play he provided as a member of the Jazz. The Rockets are hopeful he’ll have a bounce back season in Clutch City.
