Derrick Brown has signed with Lokomotiv Kuban in Russia.
Brown was waived by the Spurs at the end of training camp, and rather than wait for an opportunity stateside, he'll go overseas and have a bigger role than he ever would in the NBA. Thu, Nov 1, 2012 08:57:00 AM

Spurs waive Derrick Brown.

The former Bobcat didn't do enough to distinguish himself this preseason, averaging 6.6 points in 15.4 minutes per game, but he's probably talented enough to earn a minimum deal somewhere.

Spurs sign F Derrick Brown.

It's a training camp contract. Brown has been an effective player for the Bobcats, averaging a career-high eight points last season. The deal isn't guaranteed, but it does sound like Brown has a good shot to make the team, where he would be a role player at the end of the bench.

Unrestricted free agent Derrick Brown will work out for the Spurs and Hawks next week, according to his agent Calvin Andrews.

Andrews also said that he's "hoping to develop talks with the Brooklyn Nets" in addition to the two clubs mentioned above. Brown is an unrestricted FA after the Bobcats withdrew their qualifying contract offer to him in the middle of July, and he's really received no interest to date on the open market. Brown averaged 8.1 points and 3.6 rebounds on 51.8 percent shooting for the Bobcats last year.

The Bobcats have withdrawn a qualifying offer to F Derrick Brown, making him an unrestricted free agent.

With high-profile rookies Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Jeff Taylor on board, along with veteran Reggie Williams, there really wasn't room for Brown on the new-look Bobcats.

Derrick Brown was given a qualifying offer by the Bobcats on Friday.

Brown was the preferred SF option for the Bobcats down the stretch, but with the acquisition of Michael Kidd-Gilchrist he'll be pegged for a backup role sooner rather than later. As one of the Bobcats' better players, the move gives them better flexibility as they try to retain their depth.

Derrick Brown (ankle) will not play on Thursday against the Knicks, and Tyrus Thomas will start in his place.

Thomas is a deep league desperation play, at best, and look for D.J. White to get a few extra minutes. Matt Carroll could also be worth a look in deep leagues for his 3-point shooting. Otherwise, it's possible the Bobcats go with a small lineup in their attempt to avoid history, which would benefit Kemba Walker.

Derrick Brown had 16 points, five rebounds and two steals on 6-of-11 shooting on Wednesday, but left the game late with a sprained right ankle.

Brown's ankle has been a mess for a couple weeks now, and he could miss Thursday's finale against the Knicks with the injury. The Bobcats lost for the 22nd straight time tonight, and will finish with the worst winning percentage in NBA history if they can't beat the Knicks tomorrow. Tyrus Thomas is a potential starter if Brown can't go.

Derrick Brown scored eight points on 4-of-7 shooting with seven rebounds and a steal in 26 minutes on Monday.

Brown has been dealing with an ankle injury while providing low-end value over the past few weeks. His production has slipped a bit recently due to that ankle injury, but with two more games to go he's worth a look for fantasy owners.

Derrick Brown played through an ankle injury on Friday, scoring 11 points on 5-of-15 shooting with three rebounds and three assists in 38 minutes.

The Bobcats went all-out to win their final home game, and it wouldn't be surprising if Brown leaned into his bad wheel too hard. A low-end play with some value for his steals, owners will want to monitor him closely going forward.

Derrick Brown had 14 points, six rebounds, a steal and block on 7-of-13 shooting in another ugly loss, this time to the Bulls.

He sprained his ankle early in the game, but returned and played well. Now his new owners just have to hope it doesn't swell up overnight.

Derrick Brown suffered a sprained right ankle very early in Wednesday's game, but is expected to return.

Brown was a popular add this week due to a favorable schedule, but if the injury lingers, the plan could backfire. The good news is it sounds like he'll return tonight.
Wed, Apr 18, 2012 07:38:00 PM

Derrick Brown scored seven points on 3-of-10 shooting (0-for-3 from deep) with six rebounds, three assists, and three steals in 34 minutes on Monday against the Hornets.

Brown has averaged 32 minutes, 12.2 points, 0.4 threes, 5.8 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.4 steals, 0.2 blocks, and 1.2 turnovers while shooting 48 percent from the field and 60 percent from the line over his last five contests. That's good for borderline value in 12-team leagues, and if you need steals he's well worth a look.

Derrick Brown had 15 points, seven rebounds, three steals a 3-pointer and a block in Sunday's loss to the Celtics.

Brown continues to log heavy minutes at the small forward spot as Reggie Williams has morphed into a bit bench player. He's started seven straight games, seeing 30 minutes or more in five of those. The problem is that Brown isn't a 3-point shooter, makes just 65.8 percent of his free throws and has one block in his last seven.
Sun, Apr 15, 2012 08:44:00 PM

Derrick Brown scored 21 points on 8-of-15 shooting (5-of-10 from the foul line) with nine rebounds, two assists, and a steal in 35 minutes on Friday against the Heat.

Brown may have benefited a bit from D.J. White's exit due to a headache, but owners should give Brown a look, regardless. We're not expecting huge things from him, and he has been plenty inconsistent, but the minutes are seemingly there and that gives him a fighting chance.
