11:19am: The Sixers officially announced the move, via press release.
8:54am: The Sixers will release Lorenzo Brown in order to make room for Darius Johnson-Odom, tweets Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. The Sixers agreed to sign Johnson-Odom to a 10-day deal yesterday.
Philadelphia already had 15 guaranteed contracts on the roster before signing Johnson-Odom, meaning that someone had to go. It looked like Jarvis Varnado would be the man on the block, but he re-signed with the team for the rest of the season on Wednesday.
Brown has been shuttled between the Sixers and the club’s D-League affiliate in Delaware multiple times this season. In 26 games for Philly this season, Brown has averaged 2.5 PPG and 1.6 APG in 8.6 minutes per contest. In 12 D-League games, the guard put up 17.8 PPG and 6.4 APG in just under 33 minutes per night.
