The Los Angeles Clippers today acquired guard Bobby Brown from the New Orleans Hornets in exchange for a 2014 conditional second round draft pick and cash considerations. In a related move, the Clippers released guard JamesOn Curry from his 10-day contract.
Brown, 25, has appeared in 25 games for the Hornets this season and is averaging 6.6 points and 2.1 assists in 14.9 minutes per game. A Los Angeles native who starred at Westchester High School and Cal-State Fullerton, Brown played for the Sacramento Kings and Minnesota Timberwolves in 2008-09 and has appeared in a total of 90 NBA games, making two starts with career averages of 5.6 points, 1.8 assists and 0.8 rebounds in 14.0 minutes.
Not drafted after finishing his college career as Cal-State Fullertonís all-time leading scorer, Brown appeared for Alba Berlin of Germany in 2007-08 before signing as a free agent with Sacramento. One of the greatest players in Cal-State Fullerton history, Brown was named to the Big West All-Conference Team two times in his career.
I feel bad for Jameson Curry, he was probably REALLY excited when he got the contract offer last week and only got to play for 4 seconds and didn't get to show that he is worthy of being on a real NBA team or not.
I for one is disappointed I was looking forward to seeing Jameson to play but I guess that isnt going to happen. Bobby Brown isnt exactly the answer to our prayers either though.
With you winning, wanted to see Curry play, was a fan of his when he was in the NC2A. Don't know what it is, but I like seeing undersized shooting guards play. Jerryd Bayless, Eddie House, AJ Price, DJ Augustine, JamesOn Curry and so on were always my favorites to watch.
Brown plays well in his debut
8 points/5 dimes/3 boards/1 steal/1 turnover in 15 minutes.
