Ex-Lakers Guard Jabari Brown Signs With Milwaukee Bucks
Lakers Summer League Preview: A New Beginning
Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports

One of the biggest surprises for the Los Angeles Lakers towards the end of the 2014-15 season was the emergence of shooting guard Jabari Brown, who was originally signed to a 10-day contract from the team’s D-League affiliate Los Angeles D-Fenders.

After his original 10-day contract expired, they signed him to a second one before signing him to a multi-year deal just a day after he scored 22 points against the Philadelphia 76ers.

He returned to the Lakers for Training Camp the following season, but ended up being waived just before the start of the regular season and spent some time playing in China before returning to the D-Fenders last March.

After suffering a season-ending injury in April he was waived by the team, but returned to the Lakers and played on their Summer League team this past summer in Las Vegas.

With Training Camp for the Lakers just around the corner, set to begin on Tuesday in Santa Barbara, many viewed Brown as a candidate to return to the team on a Training Camp deal, but that will not be the case as it appears he has signed a deal with the Milwaukee Bucks, via Marc Spears of The Undefeated:

In 19 games with the Lakers in 2014-15 Brown averaged 11.9 points, 1.9 rebounds and 2.1 assists on 41.2 percent shooting and 37.1 percent from three-point range.

Before signing with Milwaukee Brown was negotiating a deal to play for Anadolu Efes in Turkey.
