NBA Rumors: Houston Rockets waive Ronnie Brewer

The Houston Rockets ended up pulling off a trade before Thursday’s deadline passed, but they didn’t stop making moves then. While Jordan Hamilton settles into his new role with the Rockets, the team has announced that they’ve waived Ronnie Brewer, making him a free agent eligible to sign with anyone in the leave.

Brewer may not find immediate attention, but he’s almost a lock to be picked up before the March 1st deadline. A contender somewhere will see his value as a bench player and likely take a chance on him, but that team won’t be the Houston Rockets. A top contender may not make a run at Brewer, but he could end up with a lower tier playoff team and if all else fails, will end up on a lottery team trying to make the postseason.

It’s unclear who would have interest in Brewer, but he recently played for the Chicago Bulls and Oklahoma City Thunder — two teams who may be willing to bring him back cheap.
