New Orleans Trades Devin Brown to Chicago

ESPN NBA reporter/know-it-all, Marc Stein is reporting (via his Twitter account) that the New Orleans Hornets and Chicago Bulls have reached a deal sending the Bulls Devin Brown and the Hornets Aaron Gray. For the Bulls the deal makes some sense; shipping out Grey, who, let's face it, wasn't going to be getting much run in the Bulls already crowded front court rotation for Brown, who is very much in the "journeyman scorer" mold, a poor man's John Salmons, if you will. Brown's stats will never be confused for an all-star's, but the 31 year-old does provide some semblance of offensive "threat" for Chicago's moribund offense and should be able to contribute some solid minutes off the bench in lieu of Janero Pargo. Brown is averaging close to 10 poins a game this season and is shooting a "robust" .367% from beyond the three-point arc, which, when accompanied with Kirk Hinrich and John Salmons' shooting touch, provides some scoring assistance for Derrick Rose.
