Brown signed a contract Friday with the D-League's Grand Rapid Drive, Chris Reichert of The Step Back reports. After being cut by the Pistons following the preseason, Brown signed with the Zhejiang Golden Bulls of the Chinese Basketball Association before returning stateside. He'll attempt to continue his career in the D-League, and if he plays well, he could receive interest from NBA teams on a 10-day contract.
Brown signed a contract Thursday with the Zhejiang Golden Bulls of the Chinese Basketball Association, Sportando reports. After losing out to Ray McCallum for the third-string job at point guard while attending training camp with the Pistons, Brown has finally found a new home. If he impresses during his stint in China, he could get a look at the NBA level at some point in the spring.
Brown was let go by the Pistons on Saturday, Aaron McMann of MLive.com reports. Brown has played sporadically for the 76ers, Timberwolves, and Suns over the past three seasons. He was unable to make the final roster for the Pistons, so he will likely head back to the D-League where he will work toward another opportunity.
Brown will serve as the backup point guard in Monday's preseason game against the Spurs, Rob Beard of The Detroit News reports. It had appeared that Brown had the edge over Ray McCallum to be the team's third point guard entering training camp, and head coach Stan Van Gundy giving him the backup point guard minutes in the preseason home opener confirms that. With Reggie Jackson (knee) out, Ish Smith will start for Detroit and Brown should get a good opportunity to showcase his skills behind him Monday.
Brown looks to be ahead of Ray McCallum in the battle for the Pistons' third point guard gig entering training camp, Rod Beard of The Detroit News reports. It appears that Brown's familiarity with coach Stan Van Gundy's offense is conferring him the early advantage in the job battle, but he's far from a safe bet to keep McCallum at bay. Both players are on non-guaranteed contracts, so the roster spot will likely come down to whichever point guard performs better during camp.
