Limoges signs Brown short-term
Limoges CSP announced the arrival of small forward Anthony Brown, who signed a short-term deal with the French powerhouse on Monday. Brown (2.01 meters, 27 years old) steps in for Marcus Ginyard, who got injured last week and is expected to miss up to 6 weeks. Brown arrives from Lakeland Magic of the G League, where he averaged 12.9 points and 5.4 rebounds in 27 games last season. He started the 2018-19 campaign with Partizan NIS Belgrade of Serbia, taking part in a couple of EuroCup games in which he went scoreless. Brown has also played for Los Angeles Lakers, New Orleans, Orlando and Minnesota of the NBA, Los Angeles and Erie Bay of the D-League, and Iowa of the G League. He also been a member of the USA U19 national team. "With the injury of Marcus Ginyard, our only specific player at the small forward spot, we were in the obligation to find a quality free agente who helped us face a very demanding month of November with important games in both the French League and the EuroCup," Limoges general manager Crawford Palmer said. "Anthony Brown is almost a newcomer to European basketball but is a talented player, athletic, and a good defender. We hope he will quickly adapt to our team and the European game to be a real reinforcement while Marcus is sidelined."
