The San Antonio Spurs signed point guard Shannon Brown Saturday in the wake of injuries to Danny Green and Manu Ginobili. Green is out with a fractured finger, and Ginobili suffered a hamstring strain vs. Houston earlier this week.

Brown, 28, averaged 10.5 points, 2.5 rebounds, and 1.8 assists last seaso for Phoenix. He shot just 27 percent from deep last year.

But this is San Antonio, where Marco Belinelli is a stellar reserve and Boris Diaw is a LeBron Stopper. They do amazing things with getting guys in position to play at a high level. Brown was traded in the Suns-Wizards deal for Marcin Gortat, then waived. He surprisingly didn't get picked up until now. It's the Spurs, so he could last the 10-day and then never be heard from again or be a major contributor in the playoffs.

But after Brown's consistency throughout his career, I'd be shocked if he didn't finish the season with someone.
