Kwame Brown signs

Associated Press

July 29, 2008 at 12:24 AM EDT

DETROIT Kwame Brown and the Detroit Pistons agreed on two-year deal including a player option for the second season worth US$8 million, team president of basketball operations Joe Dumars told The Associated Press on Monday night.

Brown, the No. 1 pick overall in 2001, has averaged just 7.5 points and 5.7 rebounds over his career that started with the Washington Wizards and continued with the Los Angeles Lakers and Memphis Grizzlies.

He had the best season of his NBA career with the Wizards four years ago, when he averaged 10.9 points and 7.4 rebounds.

Kind of an odd signing as I don't know what type of a role he will play. That being said, he's been living off of his first overall pick status for a while now. He looked terrible last season.

You've gotta be kidding me .... This guy is getting $4 million per season? WOW. :cwm34:

I suppose he'll have a defensive role. Read that last year he was playing with an injury, dunno. What I don't understand is why this when you have Theo Ratliff at the same role, looks like Theo is out.

I don't know how this is gonna work out. Kwame has a reputation of being soft and he's going to one of the toughest teams in the league. It'll be fun to see how all of this unfolds.

I remember when the Lakers booed him. Hahaha.
