Brown update: Deal could come by end of the week
Shannon Brown could be signed by the end of this week.
But with who? Brown’s agent, Mark Bartelstein wouldn’t get into details
Monday, only to say that he and Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak continue to
“We’re working on it. It’s a work in progress,” Bartelstein said.
All that Brown has to is decide between a possible starting spot with either Cleveland or the Knicks or a smaller role and possibly less money to stay with the Lakers. CBSSports.com reported last week the Knicks have extended a formal offer to Brown.
Brown has played for four different teams in 3½ seasons. He averaged career highs in points (8.1), rebounds (2.2) and assists (1.3) last season, but would find his playing time lessened with the signing of Steve Blake.
