Well, the “Kwame Dream” is officially dead. The former Laker has inked with the Pistons for 4 million a year…

ESPN: Brown’s agent, Mark Bartlestein, told ESPN.com on Monday night that the former No. 1 pick in the 2001 draft has reached a verbal agreement on a new contract with the Detroit Pistons. The contract is believed to be a two-year deal worth $8 million.

  • gugy

    wow, I can’t believe people pay him that kind of money. I should have been a basketball player. I am 6’8″ but I play as bad as Kwame, but make way less money than him.

    hahahahahaha

    What a joke.

  • http://myspace.com/thaonlyrhom RD

    lol. waaaaaaay OVERPAID! they shouldve done something more like, 1 year, $800,000! lol.

  • Michael_23

    Man, I was hoping he’d go to the Celtics! hahahaa!

  • Michaelmichael

    omg 4 mill a year lmao

  • Kobe2k9

    wow I thought he would get the veteran min, if I was him I wouldn’t want to come back to LA anyway because I would be embarrassed and ashamed

  • S-quire

    Have him. Are you freaking kidding? Dumars must think he’s the second coming of Ben Wallace. He’s not even as good as Maxiel or the guys they have now… I don’t get it.

  • jlkjfd

    hahhahhahahah omg that contract is even worse then mj picking brown first

  • mike

    laugh now piston made a good move lakers should have got him when ronny turned into an warrior say wut yall want about my comment but watch next season good move pistons !!!

  • Kobayashi

    At least we now know that Kwame was out of the Lakers price range. There is no way that they would give him $4 million/year.

  • Lakers 24 7

    It will be a good move once Kwame turns over the ball over and over and OVER AGAIN!!!

  • ricky

    now we have no options at all coming off the bench with kwame signing with detroit. the forward/center spot is where we needed help with after ronny left and because we didnt make a move to sign any of the big guys, most of the affordable ones have all been taken. now what options do we have??

  • lafanfromindiana

    I’m pretty disappointed in this. I think Kwame would have taken alot less to play in L.A. but someone in the Lakers organization probably thinks we don’t need him when we have Chris Mihm. What a joke.

    Oh yeah, does anyone know how soon Kwame can be a part of a trade? Maybe the Pistons want to unload him with Prince to a team? I don’t know the rules about that though.

  • daboss1849

    Thank god we didn’t sign this fricken loser for 2 years. Detroit will regret it!!!!!

  • lskerfan567

    LOL!!!!

  • LakersFirst

    Kwame has the greatest agent alive. To get an $8M contract over 2 years after having the season he just had. Kwame’s agent is a worker of magic.

  • Lakers 24 7

    I know it would be good to have Kwame as a back up, but we finally got rid of this dude, Lakers can find better talent.

  • daboss1848

    wait, wait .. there was a “Kwame Dream”?

  • pio2u

    Kwame signs for 4 mill per. you gotta be joking! Hopefully Detroit will cut McDyess so we can sign him.

  • http://www.jamieinsider.com Jamie Spears Insider

    I think Kwame is somewhat underrated. He’s not good as a starter but he’ll be a decent bench player. Everyone mocks him b/c he didn’t live up to being the #1 pick.

  • MILO

    Guy’s we have to admit that atleast kwame still has some defense! i wish i could say the same for Mihm/Trash

  • Sako

    Kwame Dream? The only dream of mine that Kwame was in was a nightmare.

  • Make a Move, Mitch.

    speechless

  • http://www.jamieinsider.com Jamie Spears Insider

    I do admit though, the contract value is a bit too large for Kwame. At the same time, we must consider the fact that there’s not many big, bulk, quick big men left in the free agent market.

  • Edward

    Kwame might get good around that team. They’re all tough. He could totally change his style of play.

  • RAZOR RAMON
