Darren Wolfson: Corey Brewer and Davis Bertans are two more FAs that the #Twolves have planted seeds on. 2018 falls in line with 2016 and 2017 FA process that involved reaching out on dozens upon dozens of players.
Erik Horne: For anyone asking about Corey Brewer, he hasn't signed yet ... so he's obviously not with the team and when/if he'll play for the Thunder is TBD.
Bobby Marks: The Thunder are making a $1.2M investment with the addition of veteran Corey Brewer. The signing will cost Oklahoma City $852K in additional luxury taxes and $341K in salary. In total, Brewer will earn $539K if he signs his contract on Friday. The Thunder only had the pro-rated minimum exception to use to sign Brewer and now have a tax bill of $25.4M, 3rd highest in the NBA.
Corey Brewer has committed to sign with the Oklahoma City Thunder, league sources told Yahoo Sports. Brewer spoke to Thunder head coach Billy Donovan and general manager Sam Presti on Wednesday night, as well as three Eastern Conference teams, before finalizing his decision on Thursday morning, league sources said. Brewer’s longstanding relationship with Donovan — who coached him as part of Florida’s two national championship teams in 2006 and 2007 — was a significant factor in choosing to sign with the Thunder after he clears waivers on Friday.
David Aldridge: While OKC is still in the mix for newly released @Corey Brewer w/Billy Donovan ties, source says Eastern Conference team more likely. Brewer could still sign with Thunder after Thursday and be playoff eligible if he doesn’t reach a deal with another team & clears waivers.
Tania Ganguli: Corey Brewer is on a flight back to Los Angeles, having agreed to a buyout with the Lakers. "I just want to play basketball," he told me. "It’s tough not to be playing. I know I can still play." Hopes to land somewhere he can help a playoff team make a run.
Alex Kennedy: Reminder: Players don't have to sign by March 1 to be playoff eligible. They just have to be waived or bought out by March 1 to be playoff eligible. So if a player is waived today, he could wait until the last day of the regular season to sign and still be playoff eligible.
Adrian Wojnarowski: After Corey Brewer’s buyout with the Lakers, a reunion with his college coach Billy Donovan in Oklahoma City is a serious possibility, league sources tell ESPN. He will talk to other teams too.
Sam Amick: Corey Brewer expected to take his time in deciding his next spot after his Lakers buyout, I’m told. Cavs, Wizards, Portland, Bucks have shown some interest already, but Corey wants a legit role.
Marc Stein: Veteran swingman Corey Brewer is in advanced negotiations toward securing a buyout from the Lakers to become a free agent, league sources say
Jonathan Feigen: I stand corrected on Brewer. He apparently has had his physical and signed, per source.
Marc Stein: ESPN sources say Corey Brewer and Houston Rockets closing in on a multiyear deal
Adrian Wojnarowski: Free agent Corey Brewer has agreed to a three-year, $24 million deal to return to the Houston Rockets, league sources tell Yahoo Sports.
Sean Cunningham: Source tells me that the Kings have made contact with Corey Brewer's camp. No meeting scheduled - Brewer met with the Knicks today.

A couple of notes on the Knicks’ reported interest in Derrick Rose… Tom Thibodeau coached Rose in Chicago and signed him in Minnesota. So Thibodeau would probably be in favor of the Knicks’ pursuit. Prior to the 2020 NBA trade deadline, neither the Detroit Pistons nor Rose had strong interest in executing a trade that would send Rose out of Detroit. Rose was happy with the Pistons and saw Detroit as a potential long-term home, per SNY sources.
Under new GM Troy Weaver, it’s possible the Pistons take a different approach with Rose. Rose, it’s worth noting, enjoyed his time with the Knicks and hoped to re-sign with them in the 2018 offseason. The Knicks opted against re-signing him and Rose subsequently signed short-term deals with Minnesota and Detroit. Rose is set to be a free agent in the 2021 offseason. If the Knicks were to give up assets for him, it would indicate that they planned on re-signing him in the 2021 offseason. New York will have significant cap space this the coming offseason.
Ira Winderman: Heat injury report for Wednesday vs. visiting Nuggets: Out: Jimmy Butler (protocols) Chris Silva (hip flexor) Meyers Leonard (shoulder) Moe Harkless (thigh) Questionable Avery Bradley (protocols) Tyler Herro (neck) Goran Dragic (groin) Gabe Vincent (ankle)
Jason Jones: Hassan Whiteside has a lot of love for Tyrese Haliburton, but has these issues with the rookie: 1. Tyrese saying Krispy Kreme doughnuts aren’t good 2. His “ugly” shot 3. His short shorts 4. Tyrese slacking on rookie chores This was all said in fun BTW
