The Los Angeles Lakers have acquired forward Corey Brewer and an unprotected 2017 first round draft pick from the Houston Rockets in exchange for guard Lou Williams, it was announced today by President of Basketball Operations Earvin “Magic” Johnson.

“This trade allows us to continue on the path of building something special, while maintaining future flexibility within the organization,” Johnson said. “Additionally, Corey is a proven veteran that will make a positive impact on our team right away.”

Brewer, 30, has appeared in 58 games (eight starts) for the Rockets this season, averaging 4.2 points, 2.0 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 15.9 minutes per game. Originally drafted by the Minnesota Timberwolves with the seventh overall pick in the 2007 NBA Draft, Brewer has averaged 9.4 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.6 assists through 687 career NBA games. The former Florida standout was a two-time NCAA champion before winning an NBA Championship with the Dallas Mavericks in 2011.

Williams owns career averages of 12.8 points, 2.1 rebounds and 2.9 assists through 759 NBA games. In 125 games (36 starts) with Los Angeles, he averaged 16.8 points, 2.4 rebounds and 2.8 assists in 26.5 minutes per contest.
