MINNEAPOLIS (AP) The Houston Rockets made a move to bolster their depth on the perimeter on Friday, landing veteran swing man Corey Brewer from the Minnesota Timberwolves.

The Rockets sent shooting guard Troy Daniels, cash considerations and a pair of future second-round picks to Minnesota, a person with knowledge of the agreement told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the trade has not been officially announced. The Timberwolves will get a second-round pick in 2015 from Sacramento and a 2016 second-rounder from Houston.

The trade gives the Rockets another proven veteran defender in Brewer to compete in the demanding Western Conference, where they were in fourth place at 19-6 after Thursday's games. Rockets GM Daryl Morey has been in pursuit of help for weeks, knowing that Golden State, Memphis, San Antonio, the Clippers all may have superior depth to his roster.
