ESPN.com has learned the Wolves granted permission to the Rockets and Cavs last month to talk to Brewer's representatives when a trade appeared imminent, since both teams would hope to persuade Brewer to waive his $4.9 million option for next season to help facilitate the trade and lessen the long-term financial implications of acquiring him. It's believed that Brewer will consider doing so for the opportunity to join a title contender. ESPN.com

The Rockets, meanwhile, have been known to ‎covet Brewer since last season, with sources saying they registered trade interest in the 28-year-old even before Brewer uncorked a career-high 51 points against Houston late last season. Rockets coach Kevin McHale drafted Brewer in Minnesota when he was still the Wolves' general manager and, according to sources, spoke directly to Brewer last month when the Wolves gave Houston permission to do so.

The Cavs are unquestionably interested in a deal for Timberwolves forward Corey Brewer, as reported Sunday by ESPN. One team official told FOX Sports Ohio that Brewer would be the perfect fit. He defends wings, doesn't need the ball, and would allow Marion to move back to his role as James' backup at small forward. And yes, keep the often shot-happy Waiters coming off the bench and scoring points -- which is how the Cavs' really like him. FoxSports.com
