Brown, 23, finished the 2015-16 season with the Los Angeles D-Fenders of the NBA D-League after playing 27 games with the Forshan Long Lions of the Chinese Basketball Association.

Through his play with the D-Fenders, Brown earned two 10-day contacts with the team’s NBA affiliate, the Los Angeles Lakers, who later signed him to a multi-year contract. In 19 games with the Lakers, Brown averaged 11.9 points and 2.1 assists in 29.9 minutes per game.
