With the onset of Houston Rockets training camp Corey Brewer returns happy to be playing up tempo ball again.
When Corey Brewer was traded to the Houston Rockets his initial time on the court was about as positive as a player could get. At the time he was part of a bench unit that utilized speed and energy to push the ball in transition to score. Further this group played energetic defense forcing turnovers to create easy buckets.

That line-up that featured Jason Terry and Josh Smith who I referred to as the ‘head band trio’ is now all gone except Brewer.
Following the September 24th training camp practice Corey Brewer spoke to the media and made it clear he’s happy with the new direction.
Clutch City fans have been accustomed to the ear to ear grin Brewer often sported in his first season. Perhaps that is why everyone knew the situation was dire last season as Brewer’s perma grin had seemingly been replaced by a scowl.
Speaking to reporters post training camp practice Brewer noted:
- His game is definitely more suited to an up tempo, transition game
- Last season was unbearably difficult
- He’s delighted to be playing with Nene who he has a history with in Denver
- Sites Gordon and Anderson as major additions
- Noted how difficult last season was as it wore on
- Says this season is much more positive
- Touched on how much the spacing will improve the overall dynamic of the team
- Brewer says everyone is excited to be there
- Excited to have Bzdelik on board for the defense.
