With the caveat that this is exhibition season, the Minnesota Timberwolves most recent first round pick out of Syracuse, Wesley Johnson, looks dynamite so far. He’s a bit high in turnovers, and doesn’t rebound much, but so far he looks like a shotmaker.
On the other hand, the Timberwolves first round pick from a couple of years back, Corey Brewer, looks awful. That is no surprise. Brewer has been unproductive since he began his NBA career. He does almost nothing well.
The Timberwolves would be well advised to sit Brewer down for good. He’s nothing but a loss producing machine. The Wolves ought to give his minutes to Johnson.
Look at the numbers. So far in the exhibition season, and again its exhibition season, but so far the difference between the two players production is staggering. Johnson has compiled a Win Score of 11.57 whereas Brewer has compiled a Win Score of -15.16.
Brewer’s Win Score is in line with his career production. The guy is terrible. Sometimes you just have to admit that it was a mistake to draft a certain player and move on. Continuing to give minutes to Brewer is like throwing good money after bad. All he is ever going to produce are losses. Timberwolves, its time to cut bait and sit Brewer down.
