Eight former Jazz players that still have something to play for

Current team: Oklahoma City Thunder

Years with the Jazz: 2006-2010

2012-13 stats: 0.9 ppg, 2.9 rpg, 14 games played

Playoff prognosis: At age 28, Brewer's "potential" tag appears to be expiring. The Thunder are Brewer's fourth team in five years since leaving Utah, a result of Brewer's well-documented lack of a consistent outside jumper (25.6 percent from deep in his career).

Brewer's best chance may have already passed with his two-year stint in Chicago, where his only competition for the starting off-guard spot was fellow journeyman Keith Bogans. Injuries and inconsistency kept Brewer from securing a firm grip on the job, and he's seen his value plummet ever since.

Along with Derek Fisher, Brewer may have the best chance of any former Jazz player to snag a ring this postseason. If he does, he likely won't break much of a sweat getting it thanks to a deep guard rotation that features Thabo Sefolosha, Kevin Martin, Russell Westbrook, Reggie Jackson, Fisher and Jeremy Lamb.
