FRIDAY, 12:22pm: The signing is official, the Suns announced (Twitter link).
THURSDAY, 1:44pm: The Suns plan to sign Lorenzo Brown to a 10-day contract, reports Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports (on Twitter). He’ll ostensibly go into one of the two roster spots the team will reportedly open today with the release of Bryce Cotton and Cory Jefferson.
Brown, 25, has made a total of 55 appearances in two NBA seasons, averaging 3.4 points, 1.8 rebounds, and 2.4 assists to go along with a slash line of .375/.155/.656. He was in training camp with the Timberwolves this year, but Minnesota waived him prior to the regular season. Brown’s deal with the Wolves included a $75K partial guarantee, giving the player some breathing room financially this season.
The point guard has been playing for the Pistons affiliate in the D-League. Brown made 16 appearances for the Drive this season and notched 16.4 points, 5.3 rebounds and 6.1 assists on 47.8% shooting.
