Brown has been waived by the Raptors on Monday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Brown's contract would've become guaranteed for the season if not waived by the Raptors on Monday. The former second-round picked averaged just 8.2 minutes and 2.1 points across 26 appearances this season. Brown will ultimately become a free agent if he clears waivers.
Brown will start at point guard for Thursday's preseason finale against the Pelicans, Ryan Wolstat of the Tronot Sun reports. The Raptors are resting nearly all of their starters and regular contributors, so Brown will get the call to jump into the top unit and should see a fairly hefty workload as well. Joining Brown in the starting five will be Jordan Loyd, OG Anunoby, Pascal Siakam and Greg Monroe.
Brown is finalizing a one-year contract with the Raptors on Tuesday, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports. Brown had his two-way contract upgraded to a regular contract in April and saw action in 14 games for the Raptors, averaging 2.3 points, 1.1 rebounds and 0.9 assists in just under 10 minutes per game. The 27-year-old earned G-League MVP honors for the Raptors affiliate in 2018 -- 18.8 points, 8.9 assists and 5.2 rebounds on 33.2 minutes per game -- but is unlikely to start the season in the regular rotation.
Brown was upgraded to a regular contract for the rest of the season, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports. Brown has played on a two-way contract with the Raptors for the entire season thus far, though he's seen action in a total of just 14 games at the NBA level. In the G-League, however, the 6-foot-5 guard has been dominating, earning him G-League MVP honors. Across 32 games with the Raptors' affiliate, he's averaged 18.8 points, 8.9 assists, 5.2 rebounds and 1.8 steals over 33.2 minutes. Now that Brown has been upgraded to a regular contract, he'll be eligible to remain with the Raptors during the playoffs, though he's still not expected to crack the regular rotation.
Brown dropped 30 points (12-21 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 2-3 FT) while adding seven rebounds and five assists during Saturday's 106-97 win over Canton. This was Brown's first game back since nursing an ankle injury and responded with reaching the 30-point mark. The 27-year-old guard from North Carolina State has been a strong offensive performer all season long for Raptors 905 as he contributes with 18.6 points per game to go along with 9.0 assists.
