Hornets ink G Brown

Oklahoma City, OK (Sports Network) – The New Orleans/Oklahoma City
Hornets signed free agent guard Devin Brown, the team announced Friday.

“Devin is a proven NBA player and he’ll help strengthen our backcourt with his
ability to play both the shooting guard and small forward positions,” Hornets
general manager Jeff Bower said. “He will be able to come in and fill some of
the void left by the injuries to Bobby Jackson, Peja Stojakovic and David
West.”

The 6-5, 220-pound Brown owns a career average of 6.3 points, 2.5 rebounds and
1.1 assists in 216 games with the Denver Nuggets, San Antonio Spurs and Utah
Jazz.

Brown, a four-year veteran, appeared in 81 games with the Jazz last season and
recorded career-highs in points (7.5) and minutes (21.1). He also scored in
double figures 24 times and had two 20-plus point games.
