MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Timberwolves exercised team options for point guard Randy Foye and swingman Corey Brewer on Wednesday.

Foye's fourth-year option is worth nearly $3.6 million. After missing the first 41 games with a knee injury last year, he returned to average 13.1 points, 4.2 assists and 3.3 rebounds.

Brewer's third-year option is worth nearly $3 million. He struggled on offense as a rookie last year, averaging just 5.8 points. However, the Wolves have been pleased with his defense on a team that has had trouble on that end of the floor.

That defensive prowess earned him a spot in the starting lineup of the team's season opener on Wednesday night against Sacramento.
