If the Minnesota Timberwolves are serious about offloading shooting guard Corey Brewer via trade, it appears the Houston Rockets remain a major suitor for the 28-year-old.
Per 1500 ESPN's Darren Wolfson, the Houston Rockets' coaching staff remains one of Brewer's biggest fan clubs:
Word has the Rockets still after Corey Brewer -- the coaching staff really likes him. Nothing imminent though. #twolves

While the Cleveland Cavs have also expressed interest in Brewer, ESPN's Marc Stein indicated last month that the Houston Rockets are a much more likely destination if a deal is to get done:
Things are fluid, as always in trade talks, but latest word is Houston more likely than Cleveland as landing spot via trade for Corey Brewer — Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) November 20, 2014
As one of the only projected starters that has remained healthy in 2014-15 for the Minnesota Timberwolves this season, Brewer is currently averaging 10.7 points, 3.9 rebounds, and 3.3 assists in 28.3 minutes per game for a Wolves team that has been forced to accelerate its youth movement all season long.
