August 17, 1984 - Dee Brown is born in Jackson, Mississippi. Happy 33rd Birthday Dee Brown! During the 2006 NBA Draft, Brown was selected 46th overall by the Utah Jazzbut was not offered a guaranteed contract. Brown attended the team's training camp in the fall, where he and various undrafted players competed for a roster spot. On August 29, 2006 Dee Brown signed with the Jazz and was reunited with former college teammates Deron Williams and Roger Powell, who also signed with the team. On November 14, 2006, Brown scored his first points in the NBA with a pair of free throws against the Los Angeles Clippers. Through the first month of the NBA season, Brown played off the bench in eight of the Jazz's seventeen games. Brown played in 49 games during his rookie season, averaging just under two points per game. After spending the 2007–08 season with Galatasaray Café Crown in Turkey, he was signed by the Washington Wizards to an offer sheet for a two-year, partially guaranteed deal on July 9, 2008. Since Brown was still a restricted free agent at the time, the Jazz were given one week to match the offer, but declined to do so since they were already stocked at point guard. Brown officially signed with the Wizards as a free agent on July 30. Due to an injury to guard Gilbert Arenas, Brown broke into the Wizards rotation, eventually becoming the starting point guard. Brown averaged 2.4 points and 1.9 assists in 17 games with the Wizards. Brown was released by the Wizards on December 10, 2008 to make room for Mike James and Javaris Crittenton, two guards acquired by the Wizards via trade. On December 23 Brown was signed by the Phoenix Suns, who were looking for a backup point guard. After playing two games in which he averaged 2.5 points and 1.5 assists per game, Brown was released. In 2010 the Dallas Mavericks invited Brown to their training camp, but he was waived on October 21.
