Armor acquire Lorenzo Brown from Timberwolves affiliate

Streeter Lecka

Lorenzo Brown, a 6'5" point guard out of North Carolina State, has been traded by the Iowa Energry, the Timberwolves D-League affiliate to the Springfield Armor. In a three-team deal involving the Armor, the Energy and the Tulsa 66ers, the Thunder affiliate, Brown and the #6 pick go to Springfield. The Armor's #3 pick and Ben Uzoh, the former Net, go to the 66ers while Diante Garrett, a member of the 66ers, goes to the Energy and the #1 pick goes from the Energy to the 66ers.

Brown specifically requested a trade to the Armor. He had been cut by the T-Wolves last week.

The trade might not have merited much attention except for this irony: Brown was chosen by the T-Wolves in the second round this June with the Nets pick Minnesota acquired on Draft Night in 2011.  The Nets had traded the pick and a reported $1.25 million to Minnesota back then for the rights to Bojan Bogdanovic.

Brown, 23, played four years at North Carolina State. Here's what DraftExpress has written about him...

Brown remains an excellent prospect from a physical standpoint, standing around 6'5 with a wiry 186-pound frame. Though he has excellent size for the NBA, he is just an average athlete, more smooth than dynamic. Though he possesses good quickness in the open floor and compensates somewhat with his agility and body control, he lacks the overall explosiveness scouts covet in point guard prospects.

The D-League Draft is Friday night.
