 MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -The Minnesota Timberwolves signed first-round draft pick Corey Brewer on Tuesday.
The 6-foot-9 swingman from Florida was the seventh overall pick in last month's draft. He got a two-year deal worth $4.4 million with team options for two more years.
``We're really happy to bring a player and person of Corey's caliber into our franchise,'' vice president of basketball operations Kevin McHale said in a statement. ``He brings a lot to our team both defensively and offensively and will be a great fit with the talented young players on our roster.''
Brewer has accompanied the Timberwolves' summer league team to Las Vegas, along with former Florida teammate and Wolves second-round pick Chris Richard. Brewer, considered a defensive stopper, had 16 points and eight rebounds in his debut on Monday night against New Orleans.
