Sixers Release Lorenzo Brown

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.
