All-time greatest Utah Jazz players: No. 28 Ronnie Brewer

  • Seasons with the franchise: Four (2006-07 to 2009-10)
  • Regular-season games played: 266
  • Averages as a Jazzman: 10.5 points, 2.9 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.5 steals, 0.3 blocks
  • Shooting percentages: 52.3 from the field, 23.4 from three, 70.6 from the foul line
  • Playoff games with Utah: 25
  • Postseason averages: 7.7 points, 2.7 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 0.8 steals, 0.2 blocks

Although his late-game shooting woes proved costly in the postseason, Ronnie Brewer was a solid contributor on both ends of the floor in each of his four seasons with the Utah Jazz.

Despite the 6-foot-7, 220-pound wing’s relative youth at the time, he started alongside Deron Williams, Mehmet Okur, Carlos Boozer, and Andrei Kirilenko for a 2007-08 squad that won 54 regular-season games and ultimately reached the Western Conference Semifinals.

A skilled, sturdy defender on the perimeter, the former No. 14 overall selection out of Arkansas from 2006 ended up averaging more than 1.5 steals per game across his last three seasons with the franchise.
