    [QUOTE]The more and more I think about Brewer, I love it; he is part of the Noah, Horford trioka that won back to back; he knows who is his, a team player; unselfish, and has skills.

    I don't see the reasoning of referencing Brewer's freshman year at college when he now has a 3 year NBA sample to review. He is the classic case of drafting a 19 year old freshman based on speculation/upside that did not pan out. 
    I always thought his physique didn't play in the NBA. I assume he could put on 25 lbs and not lose his athleticism. 
    Celt's need bodies. I prefer some one who is more seasoned and game ready than Murphy and Brewer. Lets see what Doc can do with them!

    I don't see why we would need or want another 3/4 at this point.

    Hmm, I think you can definitely say Murphy is seasoned or even way beyond seasoned that could be suspected that he is on his downside.  Brewer is no question unseasoned and more of an unknown quantity.

    Murphy hasn't played a playoff game EVER, and hasn't been on the court in a competitive game yet this year! (meaning 2011)

    Re: What can Brewer bring us?

    Then it depends what you mean by seasoned.  He has not played this year because he was traded to a new team and the new coach does not think highly of him.  Surely, if he has not played in any playoff game ever, does that mean he could not do well in a playoff game after more than 11 years in the league averaging almost double double?  Superstar or even semi-star, he is not, and maybe he has really lost his form, who knows, but I sort of think he will do fine for the little that Doc and the Celtics will ask of him.

    [QUOTE]it is a good question. Brewer was a very high draft choice, is still very young, yet could not find a place on a very poor TWolves roster. In addition, while he is supposed to be a good defender, the Knicks, who have yet to play defense this year, seemingly are willing to let him go for nothing. Why aren't the Knicks saying "who will cover LBJ or PP in the playoffs when Melo needs a rest"? Two teams in need of a defender are giving up on a 24 year old. On this Celtic team, assuming health, I don't think Brewer is in Doc's 9 man playoff rotation. Perhaps the Celts are thinking for down the road with this guy?

    In a very weak draft Brewer was a mid-first round pick.  Why post erroneous information to support your perspective when it is very simply not true.

    7th pick is a mid first?

    Scubber, the Dud isn't very good with numbers - other than points scored.  He's a Knicks fan, which explains a lot.

    Corey Brewer if he can defend looks like he is worth the risk.

    He is abrasive but he is not without substance.  But is it laziness or just pure intention to sometimes believe in misinformation?  And then chewing out others with the very incorrect facts.

    Brewer has never played on a good team - he must be jumping out of his skin

    But that Knicks need wing defenders and also need to restock their roster for next year. Does it say anything that the Knicks are keeping K Azubuike and Andy Rautins over Brewer?
    Does it mean anything that the Nets prefered Johan Petro to back up Lopez, or prefered K Humphries and T Outlaw over Murphy at PF aned SF respectively? To the point that the Nets told Murphy to stay home?
    The GS Warriors are trying to turn over the roster like crazy. They are playing for nothing the rest of this year. Wouldn't they have even tried Murphy and Lee as outside/inside at the expense of Biedrins?
    I think the C's are getting roster filler, yet the postings make it sound like they now have 3 additional all stars is Green, Murphy and maybe Brewer

    Brewer is not a shooter, and he plays D.  Two things that make him expendable to the Knicks.  Remember, the coach is Mike Antoni - take out the D!

    Re: What can Brewer bring us?

    You are right in a way, these are in a way fillers but they have possible value in small contribution they can make here and there. This is because we have a good team, while Murphy could be marginal starter on a bad team, he could be a good player in a second unit of a good team.  You can't argue with what the Nets and GS are doing, they are rebuidling, and Murphy as an aging veteran in that settings is a hindrence not a contributor.  They need to give playing time to develop young players, and position themselves for the lottery.

    No one says Murphy or Brewer are superstars but can you honestly rely on kamikaze Delonte West (perpetually hurt)?  Shaq and JO are both questionable contributors at best.  I'll take these guys and be happy they were available.  At worst, they are bodies for down the stretch and both have actually done something in this league as opposed Avery Bradley and the D-League stringbean who makes Camby look like Dwight Howard.

    I agree 100% with your comments. I only mention I would have prefered someone that could bang the boards and protect the rim (which is not Murphy). Brewer also does not address the West issue of injury, as Brewer is not a guard.

    I am not excited about Murphy, either. He's a body and there's always some value in that, I guess.  He can hit a jumper if he hasn't lost it all.

    But, I'd love a stronger big who can defend if JON is out.  Krstic, Shaq, and Murphy are not strong defensive players.  

    But, at least Doc has tools now and can mix + match for the situation.  He can run, he can slow down, he can put athletic defensive players out there.....and Brewer will help that flexibility.

    Re: What can Brewer bring us?

    Brewer is listed as a 2/3 and has played both.  Imagine the lineups Doc can throw out there with the 2nd unit.  True, Brewer offers no help as a ball handler but he could be a pretty good option to play the 2 or 3 with Delonte West at BU 1.  If Danny can get a true BU PG I think they could use one of those as well since West is a combo type. 

    Lots of versatility in the lineup.

    Re: What can Brewer bring us?

    So since we have Green and Delonte West as our shooting guard and small forward, would Brewer just back them up going over to play the two when Rondo sits and Delonte is running the offense? 

    If that's right that gives us 3 deep at small forward and shooting guard. Would Brewer be willing to take such a cut in miutes though?

    [QUOTE]Rumors going on that c's are very interested in Brewer We know he can play defense and has no offense. But where can he find his spot in the rotation ? And will he get any minutes?
    Posted by MichBelgium[/QUOTE]

    LISTEN: It doesnt seem that you know our team this year. CAN u say INJURIES, the more depth the better. The better in minutes for the starters, we are an older team.....we have no idea what the O'neals will bring, so krstic and murphy are needed.....getting Corey Brewer helps spell paul,we have players that can play multiple positions. That is an advantage in the playoffs. We got rid of 2 rookies and a player that wasnt going to play again this year...we have to fill those spots for sure. I like who they are after the celtics have thought this thru.

    Defense is our signature, corey brewer delonte and jeff green, BBD off the bench. I call that defense. The offense of the bench wafer,murphy,west,green and bbd. How much more offense you need. Everyone that comes here need to know of role playing. Our fans need to understand that players that come here are not here to take starter spots,but to sub in.
