Brown was waived by the 76ers on Wednesday, Derek Bodner of The Athletic reports. Brown signed an Exhibit 10 deal with Philadelphia back at the end of August, so the expectation is that he'll receive a $50,000 bonus if he now signs with the team's G-League affiliate. Either way, Brown's release means he's unlikely to be rostered on opening day and isn't a fantasy contributor.
Brown failed to make a shot (0-1 FG, 0-1 3Pt) in Monday's preseason match against the Mavericks, but managed to record two rebounds and a block across six minutes. Brown wasn't able to see much court time Monday in his bid to make the Sixers' roster for the upcoming season. The fourth-year pro has played only 41 games over the past three seasons and currently sits behind several players on the Sixers' depth chart. He signed an Exhibit 10 contract with the team over the offseason which could indicate their intention of optioning him to their G-league affiliate the Delaware Blue Coats.
Brown agreed Wednesday with the 76ers on an Exhibit 10 contract, Keith Smith of RealGM.com reports. The 25-year-old wing is entering his fourth year in the league, but has only suited up in 41 regular-season contests between the Lakers, Pelicans, Magic and Timberwolves. He made only one appearance for Minnesota in 2017-18 while signed to a two-way deal, instead spending most of his time in the G League. Brown will face an uphill battle to make the 76ers' roster in training camp and could be headed to their G League affiliate, the Delaware Blue Coats, if he fails to make the cut.
Brown tallied 17 points (8-17 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven rebounds, two steals and an assist across 26 minutes in Friday's 69-67 Vegas Summer League consolation round win over the Warriors. With nothing left to play for, both teams gave some of the Summer League benchwarmers more time, which gave Brown an opportunity to shine again after dropping a double-double in his last appearance. Brown spent last season in Iowa with the Timberwolves' farm team. While the Kings are a better fit, the team already has a lot of young players with contracts that need development. In his quest for a training camp spot, the result may be a G-League stint once again.
Brown amassed 22 points (9-17 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 10 assists and four rebounds during Wednesday's 102-97 road loss at Windy City. In addition to recording his third double-double, Brown led all G League players Wednesday in assists. The 25-year-old out of Stanford has been a very consistent scorer for Iowa, as he has scored in double figures 36-of-39 games this season. In addition, Brown is averaging a fine stat line of 19.7 points, 5.0 rebounds and 3.8 assists.
