Back up point guard Lorenzo Brown has survived Detroit Pistons practices to earn himself another 10-day contract.
Here's the release from the Pistons:
AUBURN HILLS, Mich. - The Detroit Pistons announced [Monday] that the team has signed guard Lorenzo Brown to a second 10-day contract. Per team policy, terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
Brown, a 6-5, 189-pound guard holds NBA averages of 3.3 points, 2.3 assists, 1.7 rebounds and 13.2 minutes in 63 career games with the Philadelphia 76ers, Minnesota Timberwolves and Phoenix Suns. He was signed to two 10-day contracts with the Phoenix Suns this season and averaged 2.5 points, 1.4 assists, 0.9 rebounds and 7.6 minutes in eight games.
A second-round selection (52nd overall) by the Minnesota Timberwolves in the 2013 NBA Draft, Brown most recently played for the Detroit Pistons NBA Developmental League affiliate, the Grand Rapids Drive. In 25 contests with the Drive, he averaged 18.3 points, 5.9 assists, 5.5 rebounds and 2.1 steals.
Those are great numbers with the Drive, but Brown's unlikely to see the floor with the Pistons unless they find themselves on either end of a rout or Reggie Jackson or Steve Blake get injured. I'll play it safe and hope he continues to ride the pine, but good for him on the second contract.
