He was projected by ESPN.com's Chad Ford to be a lottery pick to mid-first round pick in the 2006 NBA Draft if he had entered the draft that year. However, Brewer, along with teammates Joakim Noah and Al Horford announced at the championship pep rally that they would be returning for their junior seasons. On April 5, 2007 Brewer chose to enter the NBA draft. Brewer was selected seventh overall by the Minnesota Timberwolves in the 2007 NBA Draft.
Brewer recorded the first triple-double in University of Florida basketball history on 18 December 2005 posting 15 points, 10 rebounds and 13 assists (the 13 assists were the most by a Gator since Jason Williams had a UF-record 17 in 1997). He also drew six charges on the defensive end that game.
Due to the retirement of the #2 jersey in Minnesota worn by the deceased Malik Sealy, Brewer expressed the desire to sport the #22 instead. He officially adopted the #22 for the season's summer leagues, in Las Vegas, Nevada.
On Feburay 21, 2011, He was traded to the New York Knicks in a three way deal also involving the Denver Nuggets.
After a spot of research, this is how i'll scout him in accordance with the written opinions of others, point form:
-Very long and athletic at 6'9".
-Made of straw at 86kgs - That's the same as me!
-Has improved his jump shot but needs a lot of work on his selection
-Can defend well, over commits on passing lane and misses rotations occasionally
-Has the occasional good rebounding game
-Not terribly good at anything particular.
Salary: This year, $3.7M+. Next year, $4.96M including a qualifying offer.
