The two-time NBA champion still has plenty left in the tank to be a valuable reserve off the bench for the Heat.
Brown, a former Phoenix Sun and L.A Laker comes in as another solid option for shooting guard and can offer great flexibility to the roster to compensate if Dwyane Wade needs to rest up through the season.
Signed earlier in the year to the New York Knicks on a 10-day contract and then for the remaining season, he was only waived last month to the surprise to many in the Knicks organiztation. Previously he had been on a 10-day contract with the Spurs.
At 28, Brown can very much be an effective player. An eight-year NBA veteran from Michigan State has been quiet the past few seasons, his most productive were his three seasons with the Lakers from 2009 to 2011 before deciding not to exercise his option to extend his contract. He then got picked up by the Suns after the NBA lockout.
Congrats to guard Shannon Brown on signing with the @MiamiHEAT! Best of luck with your new team!— Priority Sports (@PrioritySports) August 27, 2014
