Source: Ronnie Brewer Signs With The Chicago Bulls

After the Orlando Magic matched the Chicago Bulls offer sheet for J.J. Redick, the Bulls didn´t waste any time in finding another two-guard to fill the Bulls depth-chart.

According to a source, Ronnie Brewer, former Memphis & Utah player has agreed to a three-year deal worth $12.5 million.

Brewer, a former 1st round draft choice by the Utah Jazz, had a rough rookie season averaging 12.1 minutes per game and just 4.6 PPG. He rebounded during his sophomore season averaging 27.5 MPG, .558 FG% and 12 PPG. While in 08-09 he played 32.2 MPG and had .508 FG% and 13.7 PPG.

After a down year in 09-10 Brewer was traded to the Memphis Grizzles where he played only five games before sitting out the rest of the season with injuries.

If Brewer can stay healthy and play at the top of his game the Bulls could have a really good back-up player in their hands. Yet there are still some doubts about Ronnie Brewer, will he stay healthy and will he improve his 3pt. shot (career average .234)?

Hopefully he wont disappoint and will help the Bulls have a chance to make a run in the playoffs.
