MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - The Minnesota Timberwolves have turned over their roster many times since Corey Brewer was selected in the first round in 2007.
Now Brewer himself has been traded away -- and re-signed.
The Wolves brought the swingman back last week on a three-year, $15 million contract. After a productive season for a playoff team in Denver, Brewer became a free agent.
He considered Milwaukee and Sacramento, but when Minnesota expressed interest the decision was easy. He developed a fondness for the fans, if not the cold weather, during his first stint here. His appreciation for the organization was reinforced in recent days when owner Glen Taylor called him to encourage him to sign.
And Brewer saw legitimate potential in the group being assembled by new boss Flip Saunders.
