Brewer will be an unrestricted free agent next summer and figures to be one of the more coveted wings due to his strong ability to defend the perimeter. However, Brewer’s first choice is to sign a multi-year deal with the Nuggets and remain with the franchise long-term.
“You know I’d love to be here,” Brewer said to HOOPSWORLD. “But you never know what’s going to happen, because it’s the NBA. I just take it day by day and hopefully this will be home.”
Brewer is set to earn $3.2 million this season in the last year of his deal.
The Nuggets are currently committed to $67 million in salaries for the 2013-14 campaign, which doesn’t include a potential qualifying offer to center Timofey Mozgov, who will also likely hit the free agent market. The Nuggets could find themselves in luxury tax territory barring any cap clearing deals on the horizon.
Brewer is playing the best basketball of his pro career, averaging 11 points and three rebounds per game this season. The forward quickly credits Karl with his on-court development and helping him to carve out his role in the league.
