    I have basically zero expectations of Brewer. He's a half-way valuable expiring contract this summer and that's about it. If he actually comes here and contributes something, I'll be pleasantly surprised.

    I'll try not to cuss at him in gameday if he makes his typical boneheaded decisions. His IQ leaves much to be desired.

    That being said, he's in much better physical shape than Deng right now. He should be able to do a better job closing out on shooters and running the floor.

    I mean, he kinda has that angry attitude and he does play hard on D. At the very least I hope he gets in some of our young guys faces for playing so soft. Other than that I expect almost nothing, just another guy to yell at the tv over instead of Deng.

    always thought he was overrated, but he seems like a good locker room guy.

    Just another addition by subtraction (of points scored) to aid with the tank.

    I've never been a Brewer fan, but he's a Laker now, so welcome.

    No, but will he consume all the possessions when he's on the court?

    Do you want 20+ points off the bench any longer?

    He has some similarities to Lou

    Both are currently 30 years old
    Both will also be on their 5th team with this trade
    Both were drafted after foreign guys. Brewer with Yi Jianlian and Lou with Martynas Andriuskevicius
    Both have a career FG% below 42.5%
    Neither has been in the NBA Finals

    Yup. So I clearly expect Brewer to replicate Lou's production.

    Brewer is listed as 6-9 on the 'net...doesn't look it. More like 6-6.

    I would let him lose on JC/Dlo/Ingram during practice. Let him beat up on those 3 and show them no more F'ing around

    I found a pic where he's next to Kobe. He's taller.

    He's a legit 6'8" ... he's skinny so you think he's taller.

    I remember many of us wanting him during Kobe's prime. I guess better late than never.
