Kings sign veteran Corey Brewer for remainder of season

Associated Press

The Sacramento Kings are making a serious push for the playoffs. It’s been a dozen years since the Kings were in the postseason, the longest drought in the NBA and tied for the third-longest streak in NBA history. The Kings are two games back of the Clippers and Spurs for the final playoff slot in the West with 21 games remaining.

To help provide some depth and veteran leadership during that push, Sacramento has signed Corey Brewer for the rest of the season, the team has announced.

Brewer had played through two 10-day contracts with the team. He has played in just three games for the team but had 11 points in only 13 minutes against Golden State, and scored 12 points against the Timberwolves.

Brewer is splitting backup time on the wing with Alec Burks and Bogdan Bogdanovic. While Brewer will not see a lot of minutes, he is a guy coach Dave Joerger can lean on to give the team quality minutes down the stretch.
