Lorenzo Brown To Play In Italy

July 29 at 9:58am CST By Chuck Myron

Former Sixers guard Lorenzo Brown has signed with Reyer Venezia of Italy, the team announced (translation via Sportando’s Emiliano Carchia). The terms are unclear, and it’s uncertain whether the new contract for the Andy Miller client includes an out clause that will allow him to return to the NBA this year, should an opportunity arise. He recently completed a five-game stint with the Clippers summer league team, averaging 13.6 points per game.

Brown, 23, appeared in 26 games with the Sixers last season before they cut him in March to make room for a 10-day contract to Darius Johnson-Odom. He was the 52nd pick in the 2013 draft, but the Timberwolves relinquished his rights when they waived him prior to opening night last season.

The Sixers scooped him up a few weeks into the season, but he saw most of his playing time at Philadelphia’s D-League affiliate, averaging 19.9 points, 6.9 assists and 5.3 rebounds in 35.0 minutes per game for the Delaware 87ers. He saw just 8.6 MPG with the big club in Philly, notching 2.5 PPG, 1.6 APG and 1.1 RPG. Brown also spent time with the D-League’s Springfield Armor.
