Meet Bobby Brown

Bobby Brown, former Cal State Fullerton Titan. Douby II? Ronnie Price The Sequel? I don't know. But I know this is a highlight reel of the time Bobby Brown dropped 47 points in college.

My man Nate Jones interviewed Brown last summer. An excerpt:

NJ: Is there a team you'd prefer to play for right now?

BB: Phoenix or Golden State.

NJ: So you like that up-tempo style that a lot of the teams in the league are currently playing?

BB: Oh yeah.

ESPN's Marc Stein, a Fullerton alum, has been a big Bobby Brown booster through the last few years. He reports on the signing with much more vigor than most $450,000 contracts deserve.

Israel's Maccabi Tel-Aviv -- perenially one of the strongest teams in Europe -- has been pursuing Brown aggressively this month, but sources said Brown was on the verge of accepting a multiyear deal "in the millions" from Spanish giant Barcelona this week when Sacramento increased its bid.

Kings > Europe > Hawks.

Is Brown a replacement for Sean Singletary, who didn't close summer league very well? The roster is clearly not yet set, with trades anticipated. But ...

Guaranteed Contracts
Kevin Martin, Francisco Garcia, Beno Udrih, Ron Artest, Quincy Douby, John Salmons, Jason Thompson, Spencer Hawes, Mikki Moore, Brad Miller, Shareef Abdur-Rahim, Kenny Thomas, Shelden Williams, Bobby Brown.

That's 14, which leaves room for potentially one more player. The Kings in the past have preferred to leave one spot open. However, with the new D-League team in Reno, and Geoff Petrie's reportedly close relationship with the general manager, Sacramento could carry 15 and keep one or two in Reno.

Singletary or Brown would be prime candidates for that duty.
