Brewer noted that getting to play for Billy Donovan again plus the chance to make the playoffs was a huge factor in his decision to sign with OKC.
After winning multiple National Championships together at Florida, Brewer and Donovan kept in touch, which ultimately helped bring him to OKC. According to Brewer, he still treats him like “an 18-year-old kid again.”
Since joining the Thunder, the veteran role player has scored in double figures in three games. He attributes his quick adjustments to the group around him.
After praising his teammates abilities and efforts, Brewer discussed his thoughts on the Thunder’s performance this season, noting that he feels they’re much better than their record indicates.
For a team with such a skilled core-group, it won’t take much for them to get going, and a player like Corey Brewer will only help their current situation. Will he completely fill the void left by Andre Roberson? Probably not. But he’s a step in the right direction, and Brewer is enjoying the ride.
