Multiple reports indicate that Corey Brewer is on the verge of signing a multi-year contract with the Dallas Mavericks. If that’s the case, Dallas blog Mavs Moneyball sees this as a good move. Not a can’t-miss proposition, but one that can shore up some depth issues for the Mavs:
While it is not a can’t-miss kind of move, it is definitely a move that gives the Mavericks even more depth. The former Florida Gator should become one of Dallas’ best perimeter defender and close up a hole that the Mavericks were unable to fill before last week’s trading deadline as they were in pursuit of Detroit’s Tayshaun Prince. Brewer is listed at 6-9, which would provide excellent length throw at the likes of Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant and Manu Ginobili.
The Mavs were able to outspend the other suitors due to the fact they still possessed all of their Mid-Level exception from last summer.
