The Utah Jazz have agreed to trade Ronnie Brewer to the Memphis Grizzlies for a protected 2010 first-round pick, a source close to the situation told ESPN.com on Thursday.
The deal gives the Grizzlies yet another athletic swingman and allows the Jazz to save money.
Utah had a bit of a logjam at Brewer's position. His $2.7 million salary was essentially double that because the Jazz are over the luxury-tax threshold.
Isn't this a trade we should have done? I realize Ronnie is having a down year, but folks on this site have long talked about Brewer as a potential "poor man's" Rudy Gay. I would think we'd give Utah their pick back for him.
