Great news. Let’s get ‘em! As rare as it may be, there are indeed some players that will take a ring over money. Brown is one of them!
NBA FanHouse: Shannon Brown is returning to the Lakers.
Brown’s agent, Mark Bartelstein, told FanHouse on Thursday the deal “definitely” will get done later in the day. The free-agent guard will sign a two-year, $4.6 million contract, with the second year a player option. He will make $2.2 million this season, with the option year worth $2.4 million.
“The lure of the Lakers was too great,” said Bartelstein, whose client had been looked at strongly by New York. “He didn’t want to look back and not have the chance to go for a third straight championship.”
