Estudiantes announced Corey Brewer
Corey Brewer(1.88-PG/SG) will be the player to replace Vonteego Cummings(1.91-PG). The rumors about Cummings' replacement go back to the beginning of December. Estudiantes announced via their official site the signing of Corey Brewer until the end of the season. Cummings never got along with the coaching staff of Estudiantes and now he will be possibly
replaced by Brewer that was released from ASK Riga, apparently due to the financial problems that Riga is having.
Brewer returns to Estudiantes after 4 years and Estudiantes find themselves exactly in the same spot they were last year, very close to the relegation zone. "It's very special for me to return to Estudiantes" - Brewer said during the signing of his contract, "and I hope to help as much as possible to improve the situation of the team, which for me is like my home." Today
he will have his first training session with the team. Brewer averaged 12.4 points 2.9 assists and 4.9 rebounds in 7 games in the latvian league.
