Lakers Agree To Deal With Troy Brown Jr

The Lakers are signing small forward Troy Brown Jr. to a veteran’s minimum contract, per Shams Charania of The Athletic.Troy Brown Jr

Brown, 22, is 6-foot-6 and appeared in 66 games with the Bulls last season, averaging 4.3 points. He spent the last two seasons in Chicago, with a two-year run in Washington before that. 

His best season came in 2019-20, when he averaged 10.4 points and 5.6 rebounds in 69 games with the Wizards. Since then, his scoring average has hovered around 5.0 points.

“For Brown, the Lakers represent another change of scenery and, potentially, another chance to make an impact for what could be (if things go badly) the final time in his career,” wrote Jacob Rude of SB Nation. “If nothing else, Brown is an example of the team’s commitment to get younger, faster and more athletic as he, Lonnie Walker IV and Damian Jones — the team’s first three signings of the day — all are 27 years old or younger.”
