Kwame Brown is reportedly looking to sign a deal overseas in the $300,000 range.
We had an earlier report that Brown had signed with a new agency in the hopes of playing professional basketball again, and now we know that he's focused on playing outside the U.S., which makes a ton of sense given that he never really panned out at the NBA level. Tue, Aug 23, 2016 03:38:00 PM

Kwame Brown has signed with a new agency with the hope to start playing again.

He hasn't been in the league since 2013, so the 34-year-old center would be lucky to land a training camp deal. The former No. 1 pick will not have an impact in fantasy leagues this season.

Kwame Brown has been waived by the Sixers.

It was just a matter of time and he has yet to play with the team this season. Brown will likely clear waivers and will get a chance to sign with another team. The former first overall pick from 2001 doesn't have much left in the tank, though.

Kwame Brown did not travel with the team to Europe.

Brown recently suffered a strained right hamstring and the Sixers apparently opted to leave him stateside while he recuperates. The Sixers open the preseason in Spain against Bilbao Basket, and then travel to Manchest, England to face the Thunder.

Kwame Brown suffered a strained right hamstring recently and will seek a second opinion.

That's not good news for a Philadelphia team that is already dangerously thin when it comes to big men. Then again, Brown only made it through 22 games last season, so it's probably not smart to expect much out of him even when he's healthy. Spencer Hawes is going to get all the minutes he can handle at center this season. And with Arnett Moultrie out for half the season, Thaddeus Young gets a bump, while Lavoy Allen is now officially on the radar.

The 76ers are not yet working to buy out Kwame Brown's contract.

Sixers writer Tom Moore expects the team to jettison Brown's final year, worth $2.9 million, but it's far from a priority and the team is already $16.3 million below the salary cap. For fantasy purposes, it doesn't matter whether Kwame stays in Philly or is bought out and signs elsewhere.

Beat writer Tom Moore expects the Sixers to buy out Kwame Brown's $2.9 million contract.

Even Brown's staunchest supporter, Doug Collins, gave the former No. 1 overall pick 52 DNP-CDs last season. Now Collins is gone and new GM Sam Hinkie is trying to rebuild with a team of young players that need to be in the right atmosphere. Brown would not fit in that atmosphere. A buyout agreement shouldn't be hard to reach.

Kwame Brown has exercised his $2.95 million player option for next season, agent Mark Bartelstein told Ken Berger of CBS Sports.

It was a no-brainer decision for Brown. He wouldn't be coveted by teams on a multiple-year deal and a one-year deal that is more than $3 million is just as unlikely. Brown is one of the biggest busts with the top overall pick in draft history and nobody is expecting him to be a late bloomer at age 31. He played 12.2 minutes per game last year and could have a similar role next season.

Kwame Brown has a $3 million player option for next season.

The Sixers defiantly defended the Brown signing last summer, chiding media that mocked the deal. Then he took 52 DNP-CDs even though Andrew Bynum sat out the entire season. And now they're going to have to buy out Brown if they want him out of their hair in 2013-14. Chalk it up as another blunder for a franchise that has been wallowing in mediocrity for a decade.

The Sixers will start Kwame Brown alongside Spencer Hawes against the Pacers on Wednesday.

With Thaddeus Young (hamstring) sidelined, coach Doug Collins plans to mix and match his lineups based on the matchup. Brown should get the occasional start as a result, but Hawes remains the better fantasy option as long as Young is sidelined and Andrew Bynum (knees) remains out.

Kwame Brown could draw the start against the Pacers on Wednesday.

Without Thaddeus Young (hamstring), Doug Collins indicated he's likely to mix and match depending on matchups. Regardless, the biggest winner from a fantasy standpoint is Spencer Hawes, who will be thrust into a much larger role while Young is out and Andrew Bynum (knees) also remains on the shelf. Jrue Holiday and Evan Turner will also be tasked to do more.

Kwame Brown saw his first action since January 15 on Monday and had three points, two boards and one block.

His name doesn't carry a lot of street cred in fantasy leagues, so we wouldn't bend over backwards to pick him up. We probably wouldn't bend over frontwards to pick up Brown either.

Kwame Brown (personal) will not play on Friday against the Raptors.

Brown is buried on the bench and has no fantasy value.

Kwame Brown missed practice Thursday due to personal reasons.

There was no further reason given for Brown's absence. Brown missed time earlier in the month due to a death in the family. The Sixers next play Friday against the Raptors so we'll probably hear more about Brown's status tomorrow. That said, he's a perennial backup with almost no fantasy value.

Kwame Brown (personal) will not play Wednesday against the Raptors.

Brown is away from the team due to a death in the family. Even when he returns, Brown is stuck behind starter Lavoy Allen.
