The Houston Rockets are just about done making moves for the offseason. They were able to re-sign some core pieces as well as sign and trade for some other interesting additions.

Now, they might be signing one more player. Corey Brewer, a former Rocket and current free agent, appeared in an Instagram picture with Daryl Morey with an interesting caption:

Could they look to re-sign him?

It’s very possible that the Rockets could be looking to “Brew” things up and bring back Corey Brewer. He is a great locker room guy and a great teammate who can help the team in those aspects. I don’t, however, think he would be able to find playing time in a second stint with Houston.

Brewer is a high energy player who will always be remembered for Game 6 against the LA Clippers in the 2015 playoffs, but he just doesn’t fit offensively for the team. He cannot shoot 3s efficiently, minus his stint with the Thunder, something that is very important for the team. With the Lakers last year, he shot 18.6% from deep. You read that correctly.

It could mean nothing

This also could mean absolutely nothing. Corey Brewer lives in Houston and he could have just come in to work out a bit in the offseason. The organization loves Brew for his contributions to the team over the years.

The roster seems to be pretty set and there really isn’t a place for Corey on it. James Ennis is everything Brewer is and more. The Rockets already have quite a few guards and forwards on the roster as well, so there just isn’t a spot for him here.

Why Gerald Green is a hometown hero. Next

I hope Corey Brewer is able to find himself a place to play this summer. If the Rockets want him here, then they’ll find a way to do that too.
