Improved Brewer excited for second run with the Wolves


Corey Brewer is excited for his second run with the Timberwolves.

"I never thought I'd be coming back," Brewer told FOX Sports North during a conference call on Sunday, "but I'm happy for the opportunity to. I didn't want to leave, so it's really good to come back."

The 6-foot-9 swingman has grown up since leaving the Timberwolves in a trade midway through the 2011 season.

"He's developed a lot since he left here," president of basketball operations Flip Saunders said. "It's always different when you come in with the expectations of a top-10 pick and you're counted on to carry a team."

Brewer agrees.

"I'm a lot better than three years ago when I left," Brewer explained to the Pioneer Press. "I've been in the league going on seven years now. I know what I can do and what I can't do. I've had the opportunity to play and get better."

Brewer was drafted seventh overall by the Wolves in 2007.
