Brewer Excited to Be in New Timberwolves Era

Newly signed Corey Brewer is back where his NBA career started, but his return to the Timberwolves is not, as a famous philosopher from another sport once said, déjà vu all over again.
Drafted by the Wolves seventh overall in 2007 and traded away four seasons later, Brewer has come home in a sense a long way from his Tennessee countryside, but so much has changed since he left in February 2011.
The franchise presumably finally has transitioned successfully from its long-ago Kevin Garnett era, and Brewer himself declares himself not the same player Wolves fans once knew.
He left in 2011 never having proved he had the offensive game to last in the NBA, with a team that drifted rudderless for years after trading Garnett away a month after Brewer arrived in Minnesota.
“That was a tough situation there; rebuilding up from KG was tough and I kind of got caught up in that, got caught in the crossfires,” he said from his Denver home. “As soon as I got drafted, he got traded. They were trying to build stuff, had a different coach every year, and I knew when David Kahn took over, I was out of there.”
