Prep years

Brewer played basketball at Fort Smith Northside High School, leading the Grizzlies to the 1974 Overall Championship and a 30-0 record [1].

Collegiate career

Following high school, Brewer attended Westark Community College[2]. Brewer then signed to play for coach Eddie Sutton at the University of Arkansas. One of the famed "Triplets" along with Sidney Moncrief and Marvin Delph, Brewer was named All-American in 1978. He averaged 18.0 points per game while helping the Arkansas Razorbacks reach the Final Four in the 1978 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament, and was also named to the All-Tournament Team.

NBA career

Ron Brewer was selected by the Trail Blazers with 7th pick in the 1978 NBA Draft, and was named to the 1978-79 NBA All-Rookie Team, after averaging 13.3 points and 1.3 steals per game. Brewer was drafted directly after Larry Bird and ahead of notable NBA players such as Reggie Theus and Maurice Cheeks[3].

Brewer went on to spend eight seasons in the league with six teams—the Trail Blazers, San Antonio Spurs, Cleveland Cavaliers, Golden State Warriors, New Jersey Nets, and Chicago Bulls—and finished his career in 1986 with 5,971 total points (11.9 ppg).

His son, Ronnie Brewer, also played college basketball at the University of Arkansas, and was selected by the Utah Jazz in the first round of the 2006 NBA Draft. They became the first father-son combination in Chicago Bulls history when Ronnie joined that team in 2010.
