Shannon Brown was waived from the New York Knicks. He averaged 14 minutes per game and 7.4 points per game in the Las Vegas Summer League. He played 19 games for the Knicks and averaged 2.1 points, 0.8 rebounds and 0.2 assists in 7.8 minutes per game.

Brown was drafted by the Cleveland Cavaliers with the 25th overall pick in the first round of the 2006 NBA Draft. He’s played for seven different NBA teams, including the Cavaliers, Bulls, Bobcats, Lakers and Knicks. He produced his highest stats with the Phoenix Suns in 2011-12, when he averaged 11 points and 2.7 rebounds per game. As a Los Angeles Laker, Brown scored a career-high 27 points grabbed 10 rebounds against the Golden State Warriors in 2010. He won his second championship at the end of the season.

It comes as a slight surprise that he was waived, as he was once coached by Knicks president Phil Jackson and played alongside Knick coach Derek Fisher. Moreover, he’s familiar with the triangle offense that Jackson worked to success with the Lakers. The 11-year veteran still has time to sign with a team before the summer ends. Armed with postseason experience and athleticism, Brown stands a chance to land a spot on a team that needs depth to prepare for the Playoffs.
