Mavericks Add Dee Brown

Via NBA.com: “Through an email from Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, Earl K. Sneed confirms that former college star Dee Brown has been invited to the Mavericks’ training camp with a non-guaranteed contract. Brown will compete for the 15th and final spot on the Mavs’ roster. Can Dee Brown revitalize his NBA career in Dallas? The former standout at Illinois certainly hopes so after announcing through his Twitter account on Thursday that he will be attending the Mavericks’ training camp with a non-guaranteed contract. Here’s what the 6-footer posted: ‘…today my agent confirmed vet camp with the dallas mavericks! @mcuban (Mavericks owner Mark Cuban’s Twitter handle) Thanks for the great opportunity to represent your organization much respect DB! I want to thank the mavs org. for showing interest,n giving me this opportunity…Let me clear this situation up!nothing guaranteed I have to go n get it!its still a blessing cuz I have always said I would do this for FREE.’ Cuban later confirmed to Mavs.com in an email that Brown has been invited to camp to compete for a spot on the team.”

    Mavs fans can turn that off-season frown upside down, because they just got Dee Brown. Good luck, Dee!

    lol. I think ‘letsmotor’ is thinking of the Dee Brown who played for the Celtics in the mid 90′s?

    LOL. Wrong Dee Brown. Great to see the “one-man fast break” back in the L! Yeah, dude played with Deron Williams and Luther Head for Illinois in college, and also balled with Shannon Brown at Proviso East HS in Maywood.

    @ES, watching dude in summerleague ball I’d sa he’s deserving, but the Mavs are stuffed at the 1, simply no space for him.

    There is only one “Dee Brown” and he’s the one that doesn’t look at the rim when he dunks.
