People forget that Brewer was one of three top ten picks from the Gators national championship team, along with Horford and Noah. Do you realize he was the #7 pick, ahead of Noah?
Brewers offensive skills are limited, but he’s actually a big offensive upgrade over Andre Roberson. His defense is not as good as Roberson, but it’s better than people think. I remember watching him in rotate on to three or four players in the same possession in some games this season, due to somebody else blowing their assignment.
This might be the first big break in his career, as he will be a perfect fit in Donovan’s system.
