Bobby Brown Signs With Poland's Asseco Prokom
Brown is no stranger to Europe, having played in Germany after leaving Fullerton. A solid year in Germany and a noteworthy Vegas Summer League 2008 for the Hornets resulted in a two-year guaranteed deal with the Kings. But Brown didn't make an imprint in Sacramento and was traded to Minnesota in a midseason salary dump. He made it to New Orleans for the 2009-10 season, but was pushed down the totem pole by breakout point guard Darren Collison, eternal MVP contender Chris Paul and young two-guard Marcus Thornton. A midseason trade to Clippers ensured an undignified end to the NBA contract.
With Asseco Prokom, Brown will look to rebuild his name in Euroleague play. The Polish domestic league isn't particularly enthralling, but Asseco has a bid for Euroleague's regular season, which begins Oct. 20. It's worth noting that had Brown stuck around the United States and played in the D-League, he would have been a stone-cold lock for a midseason call-up. The money in Poland, one would assume, must be good.
