Corey Brewer 'likely' to sign with Thunder on Friday

Corey Brewer would finally give Thunder someone who can cut to basket

Should Brewer sign with the Thunder on Friday, he will join the Thunder's ongoing quest to fill the void left by Andre Roberson. Earlier this season, he had the longest active consecutive-games-played streak in the National Basketball Association snapped at 317 but never complained. Although he is only averaging 3.7 points in 12.7 minutes per game this season, his overall influence on younger talent makes him a valuable asset.

With the Lakers giving increased playing time to young forwards like Brandon Ingram and Kyle Kuzma, Brewer has seen sporadic playing time.

Brewer's tenure in Los Angeles came about via trade, one of the first moves the new front office regime executed. I just want to have a chance to play, have an opportunity to play, now I have an opportunity to play.

Even though Brewer didn't play a ton for the Lakers, he was recently a rotation player on a Houston Rockets team that made the postseason.

That place could end up being in Oklahoma City with his former college coach, Billy Donovan.

Another candidate sprung onto the Thunder's buyout radar this morning when the Los Angeles Lakers waived Corey Brewer.

Several teams are interested in Brewer, including the Cleveland Cavaliers, Washington Wizards, Portland Trail Blazers and Milwaukee Bucks, according to Sam Amick of USA Today.

Yahoo Sports reports that the Lakers reached a deal with the 31-year-old Brewer Wednesday. The Lakers open the door for guys like Josh Hart to get more minutes with the returning Lonzo Ball. But since moving into the starting lineup on February 2, he has averaged 12.2 points, 7.4 rebounds and shot 48.9 percent from 3-point range.
