ESPN's Marc Stein is reporting the Houston Rockets have reportedly agreed to terms with former lottery selection Ronnie Brewer on Monday to bring his defensive prowess and awkward elbow stroke to Houston.
The Houston Rockets have agreed to terms with free-agent guard Ronnie Brewer, according to sources with knowledge of the deal.
Sources told ESPN.com that the Rockets struck an agreement Monday on a two-year partially guaranteed deal with the defensive specialist, who played for the New York Knicks and Oklahoma City Thunder last season.
Brewer is just the latest veteran pick up at a bargain price for the Rockets. He hasn't played much since under going undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery last September but he should provide some insurance behind James Harden. The 28 year old, 6-7 SG/SF will be entering his 8th year in the league next season and figures to add a much needed defensive presence off the bench.
Next we'll wait to see how the Rockets will trim an already overloaded roster. In the meantime, we should probably keep Brewer away from all the Houston area water parks.
