That's Dee Brown, who doesn't have an NBA team to call his own but does have a new music mixtape. (It's called "Unwritten," and the first 100 to order will get an autographed copy!) Even though he found time to put down some tracks, don't think that his lack of a job is from lack of trying. He still has a standing offer to attend training camp with the Jazz and he recently worked out for the Bucks. Brown starred at the University of Illinois and went to high school just outside of Chicago, so playing for Milwaukee would allow him the chance to play within two hours of his home turf. From his blog (via the Salt Lake Tribune):
The Milwaukee Bucks workout went really well and felt like the location and their situation fit me very well. My fan base is right here in this area, so I know people who come out and support me all games. The Bucks say they are looking for a bigger guard and the opportunity for me to play close to home is unlikely, but it's still a chance.Brown's dream to play in the land of beer and cheese isn't a complete lost cause, though, at least not following today's news that Charlie Bell has signed an offer sheet with the Heat. While there are understandable concerns about Brown's size (he's generously listed at 6-0, 185 pounds), he does bring a lot of hustle and enthusiasm to the table, not to mention a bit of Chicago street cred and fan appeal.
