It has been two years since Corey Brewer was last seen in a Minnesota Timberwolves jersey, but a reunion between the two could be a possibility.
Brewer and the Wolves have both expressed interest in bringing the 6-foot-9 free agent forward back to Minnesota, a source with direct knowledge to the situation told KSTP-TV producer and 1500ESPN.com contributor Darren Wolfson.
The Wolves' salary cap situation is fluid, making it unclear if the two sides would be able to work out a deal. But conversations about a potential deal have been held.
Drafted seventh overall by the Wolves in the 2007 NBA draft, Brewer never truly found success in Minnesota in his near four-year stay.
Brewer played two full seasons with the Wolves (2007-08, 2009-10), having sat out much of the 2008-09 season with an ACL tear. His Minnesota career ended in 2011 when he was traded after 56 games that year to the New York Knicks as a part of three-way trade.
In total, Brewer posted a 9.5 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.75 assists per game average in 232 career games (147 starts) with the Wolves.
Brewer has spent the last two seasons with the Denver Nuggets. He was primarily used as a role player off the bench last year, averaging 11.9 points and a 29.1% clip from 3-point range in 88 games (includes the playoffs).
Metta World Peace likely a no-go for Wolves
A Wolves source told Wolfson that Minnesota has no plans to go after the Lakers forward Metta World Peace. The Lakers will reportedly use their amnesty provision on World Peace, which in turn will place him on waivers and open him up to bids from other teams.
The only way the Wolves pursue World Peace, the source said, is if Minnesota coach Rick Adelman heavily insists upon doing so. World Peace played for Adelman in Sacramento and Houston.
World Peace is owed $7.7 million in the final year of his deal with the Lakers.
