At the 2022 BIG3 Combine, a number of coaches said they were looking for a lock-down defender and someone who could play multiple positions. As it turned out, Coach Gary Payton was the one who was able to get him on his squad for this season. Brewer stands at 6’9 with a wingspan to match. He has extremely active hands. Perhaps most importantly, he never, ever stops moving, and is almost always one of the fastest players on the court.
The former Florida Gator and the 7th overall pick in the NBA Draft played 13 years in the NBA, because there’s not a coach on the planet who doesn’t want a player with Brewer’s combination of size, hustle, and ability to be an absolute pest on defense. Brewer’s NBA career didn’t end until the 2019-20 season, so there’s a good chance the 36-year old still has plenty in the tank.
