2007 NBA re-draft has Sixers taking Corey Brewer with Thad Young gone early

·1 min read

In the 2007 NBA draft, the Philadelphia 76ers were looking to get back on track following a tough 2006-07 season. The Sixers had moved on from the Allen Iverson era and also waived Chris Webber as they embraced a change for the franchise.

They held the No. 12 pick and selected versatile forward Thaddeus Young, who did many good things for the Sixers during his time in Philadelphia. He was a big part of them making the playoffs four times and always did what was asked.

Due to his production in the league, Young has been taken early in a re-draft done by HoopsHype. It had Young going No. 6 to the Milwaukee Bucks, leaving the Sixers to take Corey Brewer at No. 12. Brewer originally was selected by the Minnesota Timberwolves at No. 7.

Brewer last played in the league with the Sacramento Kings in the 2019-20 season, and he averaged 8.7 points and 2.8 rebounds for his career. He ended up playing in seven games, with three starts, for the Sixers in the 2018-19 season when he signed two 10-day contracts.

Brewer averaged 7.6 points and 2.4 rebounds during his very short stint with the Sixers.
