According to Marc Stein of ESPN.com, the Dallas Mavericks are closing in on a multi-year deal with swingman Corey Brewer, who was recently bought out by the New York Knicks. The deal is expected to be in the “7-8 million range.” According to Stein, Dallas’ ability to pay Brewer more than the Spurs or Celtics would have been able to was a key factor in Brewer’s decision.

Brewer is a high-energy player and solid defender who will help Dallas recover from the loss of Caron Butler, but he will have to improve his scoring efficiency if he wants to justify the contract the Mavericks are about to give him. When Brewer does get to the rim, he can be effective, but his shot selection and jumper have rendered him completely ineffective whenever he ventures outside of the paint. If Brewer can learn to make a short-corner three or move more without the ball so that most of his shots come from the paint, this will be a quality value signing. If not, Brewer could still be useful as a defensive specialist in limited minutes.

    This signing has all the hallmarks of “Who’s going to guard Kobe in the playoffs with Caron Butler done for the year?” He might be a useful asset in that area, otherwise he might just be a 10-12 minute a night depth guy for the Mavs. Good signing in my opinion.
