Two weeks ago, Corey Brewer was just settling into his new life. The five-year veteran had worked on his jumpshot, and had recently announced he was engaged to be married to Carolyn Friedrich. Then, before Brewer could say “I do,’ the Dallas Mavericks surprisingly traded him to the Denver Nuggets. The trade, which occurred on Dec. 13 and also included Rudy Fernandez going to the Nuggets for a second-round draft pick, was nit what Brewer was expecting. “Yeah, it caught me off-guard,’’ Brewer said. “I wasn’t expecting to go nowhere, but it happens. “Things happen. It’s a business. It’s the NBA.’’ Fort Worth Star-Telegram

"I wasn't expecting to go anywhere, but things happen in this business," Brewer said. "It's a good situation to be able to have a chance to play. Over there [in the Mavs' locker room], I might have played. I might not have played. Here, it's a good situation to have a chance to get minutes." Brewer, by the way, said he didn't get fitted for his championship ring before he left but wasn't too worried. "I got two already," he said of his NCAA championship rings at Florida. "So I can send them the size if they need it." Dallas Morning News

The Dallas Mavericks have agreed to trade Spanish swingmen Rudy Fernandez and Corey Brewer to the Denver Nuggets for a future second-round pick, according to sources with knowledge of the deal. Fernandez never played for the Mavericks after being acquired in a draft-night trade with the Portland Trail Blazers. In fact, he finally resolved his visa issues Tuesday that had him stranded in his home country of Spain where he was playing for Real Madrid during the lockout. ESPN.com

The Nuggets acquired shooting guards Rudy Fernandez and Corey Brewer from Dallas, a source said, in exchange for a future second-round pick. The Nuggets were able to make the deal because of a trade exception acquired during the big Carmelo Anthony trade. Fernandez could possibly start for Denver at shooting guard. He averaged 8.6 points per game for the Trail Blazers last season - he was traded to Dallas in the summer. Denver Post
