Minneapolis, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- The Minnesota Timberwolves have signed free agent guard Corey Brewer, the team officially announced on Friday afternoon.

Brewer played the 2012-13 season with Denver, averaging 12.1 points and 2.9 rebounds per game for the Nuggets. He scored 20 or more points in 11 games, including a season-best 29 against Philadelphia.

"Corey is a quality defender and has improved his all-around game during his six years in the NBA," said Flip Saunders, Minnesota's president of basketball operations. "We think he will fit our system really well and we look forward to watching him in a Wolves uniform again."

Brewer was originally drafted by the Timberwolves with the seventh overall pick of the 2007 NBA Draft, playing parts of four seasons with Minnesota before moving on to Dallas and then Denver.
