Swingman Corey Brewer has agreed to sign with Dallas after he clears waivers, according to a source close to the situation.
The fourth-year pro who was taken seventh overall out of Florida in the 2007 draft was traded from Minnesota to New York as part of the three-team, 13-player deal that sent Carmelo Anthony to the Knicks. But he didn’t last long there, reaching a buyout agreement with New York on Monday after it was made clear by coach Mike D’Antoni that he would not be seeing substantial playing time.
Brewer was pursued by “12 or 13 teams” after becoming a free agent, according to a source, including the Mavericks, San Antonio, Cleveland and New Orleans. Brewer was known to be demanding a multi-year deal. ESPN.com’s Marc Stein first reported the story.
