Marc J. Spears of Yahoo! Sports caught up with Ronnie Brewer, the newest Bull, who chose to sign with Chicago rather than the Boston Celtics, who also presented him an offer. Via Spears’ Twitter account:
“I got an opportunity to start (in Chi). Both (Chi and Bos) are storied programs. It came down to where I could excel more,” Brewer told Y!.
Brewer says Celtics offered similar $, but starting & re-joining Utah teammates [Carlos] Boozer, [Kyle] Korver were main draw. Utah never made strong run.
Although the Celtics offered him a rotation spot on a conference championship team, the Bulls offered him something he valued more: a spot in the starting lineup and the ability to play alongside two guys with whom he’s already familiar.
