Former second-round pick Anthony Brown will play in Serbia during the 2018/19 season, with KK Partizan announcing today in a press release that it has signed the three-year NBA veteran. According to the announcement from the Serbian club, Brown will arrive in Belgrade on Wednesday.
Brown, a second-round pick in 2015 out of Stanford, spent his first two NBA seasons with the Lakers, Pelicans, and Magic before signing a two-way contract with the Timberwolves last summer. The 6’7″ forward only appeared in one game for Minnesota, but had a strong year in the G League, averaging 18.9 PPG, 4.8 RPG, and 3.6 APG with a .459/.402/.797 shooting line in 45 contests for the Iowa Wolves.
When the Timberwolves opted not to bring him back, Brown joined the Sixers for training camp and the preseason, but was waived along with a few other Philadelphia camp invitees before the regular season got underway.
Brown is the second 2017/18 two-way player who has joined KK Partizan this year — former Hornets guard Marcus Paige signed with the club in July and has averaged 14.0 PPG and 5.0 APG in his first four games in Serbia this fall.
