Former T-Wolf Brown chosen in D-League Expansion Draft
NEW YORK, N.Y. - Former ThunderWolf standout Jamar Brown, who played at then-University of Southern Colorado from 2000 to 2002 and played in the NBA D-League last season with the Colorado 14'ers, has been drafted by the Springfield Armor.
The Springfield Armor are the NBA D-League affiliate of the Philadelphia 76ers, New Jersey Nets and New York Knicks.
Brown was drafted in the sixth round of the 2009 NBA D-League Expansion Draft, which made way for the addition of the Springfield (Mass.) Armor and the Maine Red Claws. He was the 12th selection overall.
Last season, Brown played with the Colorado 14ers, the D-League affiliate of the Denver Nuggets, helping the 14ers to the NBA D-League Championship. As a bench player, Brown played in 46 games last season, averaging 16.6 minutes and 6.3 points per game. The 6-foot-9 forward also averaged 4.3 points per game and shot 50.4% from the field. The 14ers relocated to Frisco, Tex. over the offseason.
In two seasons with the ThunderWolves, Brown played 42 games and averaged 13.1 points and 6.9 rebounds per game under then-head coach, Joe Folda. Brown was recruited to the program by current Pack head coach, Pat Eberhart, who was then an assistant with the ThunderWolves.
