MINNEAPOLIS (AP) When the Minnesota Timberwolves lost Andrei Kirilenko to Brooklyn, they found themselves in desperate need of a solid perimeter defender.

Corey Brewer says he's ready to fill that role. But he's also confident that he returns to Minnesota a much more accomplished player on the other end of the floor.

Brewer says he's worked hard to refine his offensive game. He turned into a big threat in transition while playing the last two seasons in Denver and has become proficient at shooting the corner 3-pointer.

Brewer says he's a "whole different player" from the one that never quite lived up to the hype as a No. 7 overall pick during his first stint with the Timberwolves.

He also says he's ready to be a leader on the young team.
