Devin Brown Is Latest NBA Vet To Sign With D-League

The NBA Development League had quite the week leading up to the annual D-League Showcase as players flocked to the NBA's official minor league to get extra eyes on them as representatives from all 30 NBA teams flocked to lovely Reno, Nev., for the annual scouting event.

It's been one week since the Showcase was completed, however, and the NBA veterans continue to sign with the D-League in hopes of showing talent evaluators that they're in shape. The latest, according to league sources, is eight-year NBA veteran Devin Brown.

Brown is no stranger to the D-League as the 6-foot-5 swingman won the league's MVP and Rookie of the Year awards in 2003 before embarking on a fairly successful trip to the NBA. The former Fayetteville Patriot has fallen on hard times as of late, however, as he was cut earlier this year in Poland after sitting out all of last season as a free agent.

Brown will find out his new D-League team on Tuesday afternoon when he clears waivers, but it's unclear exactly what the market is for an aging wingman who was released in Europe earlier this season with reports saying that he came in out of shape. The Tulsa 66ers, Sioux Falls Skyforce, Los Angeles D-Fenders, Maine Red Claws and Springfield Armor are the top five teams in the waiver priority order, however, for whatever that's worth.

With Brown, the D-League's crop of former NBAers on the wrong side of their prime continues to grow -- even with the recent retirement of Greg Ostertag, the call-up of Mike James to the Chicago Bulls and the Maine Red Claws decision to release Ricky Davis.

Since the initial influx of players like Ostertag and Davis, the following players have joined the D-League following the end of the annual Showcase: Damon Jones joined the Reno Bighorns, Antonio Daniels rejoined the Texas Legends and Morris Almond made his return to the Red Claws.
