Lou Williams was never one to pay attention to trade rumors. Corey Brewer didn't think he’d have to this year.
On Tuesday afternoon the two players were part of the same deal, less than 48 hours before the NBA’s trade deadline. The Lakers, most likely lottery-bound, agreed to send shooting guard Williams to the playoff-bound Houston Rockets in exchange for small forward Brewer and a future first-round draft pick.
“I’ve been traded before so I’m used to it, but it’s good,” Brewer said. “L.A.’s a great city. It’s a great organization. Hopefully I can come and contribute [to] getting the team back to where they want to be, that’s a winner.”
Like Williams, Brewer...
