Miami Heat Sign Free Agent Shannon Brown

by August 28, 2014

After being waived by the New York Knicks in late July, Shannon Brown has landed in South Beach.

The Miami Heat inked the free agent guard to a one-year deal at the veteran minimum. Per the Miami Herald:

Seeking help at backup shooting guard behind Dwyane Wade, the Heat on Wednesday signed journeyman Shannon Brown, who has played for seven teams in eight NBA seasons.


Brown, 28, played in just 29 games last season – 19 for the Knicks and 10 for the Spurs – and averaged 2.2 points on 36.4 percent shooting. He played only 8.7 minutes per game last season, well below his career average of 18.0.


Agent Mark Bartelstein declined to say whether his one-year, $1.3 million contract is fully guaranteed. Brown, who is married to R&B singer Monica, was released by the Knicks on July 23.
