No surprise that the Wolves have signed Lorenzo Brown to a second 10 day contract which will keep him in a Wolves uniform until the All-Star break. Once this 10 day deal is up, the Wolves will either have to sign Brown for the rest of the season or let him go, as two 10 day contracts are the league limit for any one player.
Brown has looked like what he is: a marginal NBA point guard, but has rendered the Wolves good service, notably his 48 minute performance against the Cavaliers when he was the only player available who could remotely handle the position. He looks like a guy who could hang around as a 3rd point guard for a while and provide useful emergency minutes when necessary.
Here's some text from the press release:
Minneapolis/St. Paul - The Minnesota Timberwolves today announced the team has signed guard Lorenzo Brown to a second 10-day contract. He was previously signed to his first 10-day contract on Jan. 28.
Brown, 24, has appeared in four games (one start) with Minnesota, averaging 4.0 points, 3.8 assists and 2.3 rebounds in 24.3 minutes per game. He played a career-high 47:55 against Cleveland on Jan. 31, dishing out a career-high nine assists.
I expect the Wolves to sign him for the rest of the season once this contract expires, though activity approaching the trade deadline could possibly change their plans.
Congratulations to LoBro.
