Ronnie Brewer (born March 20, 1985) is an American professional basketball player who currently plays for the Chicago Bulls of the NBA. The Utah Jazz selected him with the 14th pick of the 2006 NBA Draft. Brewer played collegiately at the University of Arkansas, where his father Ron Brewer was a star in the late 1970s. Brewer is known for having an unorthodox shooting technique, the result of a childhood water slide injury.[1]

College career[edit]

Brewer played at Arkansas from 2003 to 2006 where he averaged 18.4 points, 4.8 rebounds, 3.3 assists, 2.6 steals, and 0.5 blocks. He also was 51–151 from three point range and shot 75% from the free throw line.

NBA career[edit]

Utah Jazz (2006–2010)[edit]

Brewer was selected with the 14th pick in the 2006 NBA Draft by the Utah Jazz. Brewer saw very limited playing time in his 2006–07 rookie season with Utah, appearing in only 56 games. However, after a strong performance in the 2007–08 preseason,[2] he assumed the role of Utah's starting shooting guard. By mid-November 2007, he was averaging double figures in points and was among the NBA leaders in steals. He was later selected to play in the 2008 Rookie-Sophomore Game. On February 28, 2009, Brewer recorded a career high 26 points, along with 7 rebounds and 4 steals against the Sacramento Kings.[3]

Memphis Grizzlies (2010)[edit]

On February 18, 2010, he was traded to the Memphis Grizzlies for a protected future first round pick. His playing time declined late in the season due to a hamstring injury and the Grizzlies' fading playoff hopes.[4]

Chicago Bulls (2010–2012)[edit]

On July 19, 2010, Brewer signed with the Chicago Bulls.[5] In his first season with the Bulls, Brewer played back up shooting guard, averaged 22 minutes per game, and was among the league leaders in defensive efficiency.

On July 10, 2012, the Bulls declined Brewer's option for the next season, along with teammate C.J. Watson's option.[6]

New York Knicks (2012–2013)[edit]

On July 25, 2012, Brewer signed with the New York Knicks.[7]

On September 7, 2012, it was announced that Brewer would be out for six weeks after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery.[8]

Oklahoma City Thunder (2013)[edit]

On February 21, 2013, the Oklahoma City Thunder acquired Brewer from the New York Knicks in exchange for a 2014 2nd round pick.[9]

Houston Rockets (2013–2014)[edit]

On August 28, 2013, Brewer signed with the Houston Rockets.[10] On February 21, 2014, he was waived by the Rockets.[11]
