    Corey Brewer will no longer be a Dallas Maverick, the team traded him to the Denver Nuggets.

    The Denver Nuggets have acquired versatile swingman Rudy Fernandez and forward Corey Brewer from the Dallas Mavericks for a future second-round pick.

    The trade was finalized Tuesday and gives the Nuggets depth as the team attempts to work out deals with free agent big man Nene and guard Arron Afflalo, who is a restricted free agent.

    After playing the past three seasons in Portland, Fernandez was traded to Dallas in a three-team deal last June that landed Andre Miller in Denver and Raymond Felton with the Blazers.

    Miller and Fernandez will now be paired up again in the Mile High City.

    Brewer signed with Dallas late last season and appeared in six playoff games for the NBA champs.
