Robert Douglas "Bobby" Brown (born September 24, 1984) is an American professional basketball player who plays for the Dongguan Leopards of the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA). Standing at 6 ft 0.5 in (1.84 m), he plays the point guard position.

After graduating from Cal State Fullerton, he entered the 2007 NBA Draft, but went undrafted. In his first pro season, he played overseas with the German League team Alba Berlin, and in 2008, he returned to the United States, where he played for several NBA teams, including the Sacramento Kings, Minnesota Timberwolves, New Orleans Hornets, and the Los Angeles Clippers.

While playing for Montepaschi Siena in the 2012-13 season, Brown tied a Euroleague scoring record since the 2000–01 season, with 41 points (the all-time single-game scoring record is 99 points, held by Radivoj Korać). Brown won the Euroleague Alphonso Ford Trophy in 2013.

Early years

Brown is a 6'2" (1.88 m) 175 lb (79 kg) point guard and played collegiately at California State University, Fullerton. Previously, he attended L.A.'s Westchester High School, playing alongside future NBA players Trevor Ariza and Hassan Adams.

Professional career

Early years

Brown left Cal State Fullerton in 2007, but ultimately went undrafted by any NBA team. He signed with the German team ALBA Berlin in August 2007, whom he helped win the German national league. He was also a participant in a five-overtime second-tier Eurocup game, in which he top-scored with 44 points, the second-highest total ever in the competition.

NBA career

In 2008, Brown returned to the U.S., and played for the New Orleans Hornets in the NBA Summer League, with his highlight being a game-winning shot against the Charlotte Bobcats, in a 77–75 win.

He was rewarded for his stellar summer league play, by his being offered a two-year contract with the Sacramento Kings, one of a handful of NBA teams that courted him. He was also pursued by multiple overseas teams that had offered him lucrative deals, among them the Israeli league's Maccabi Tel-Aviv. He also came close to accepting a multi-year contract, "in the millions", from the Spanish league's FC Barcelona.

On February 19, 2009, he was traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves, along with Shelden Williams, in exchange for Rashad McCants and Calvin Booth. On September 9, 2009, he was traded to the New Orleans Hornets, along with Darius Songaila, in exchange for Antonio Daniels, and a 2014 second round pick. On January 26, 2010, Brown was again traded to the Los Angeles Clippers, for a conditional 2014 2nd round pick and cash considerations.

He was on the Toronto Raptors roster for the 2010 NBA Summer League.

Return to Europe

On September 22, 2010, Brown signed with the Polish League team Asseco Prokom, but he was released in December due to poor performances in the Euroleague. In his first Euroleague season, he averaged 10.7 points in 26 minutes per game, over six games, with Asseco Prokom, but shot only .333 percent from the field. On December 3, 2010, he signed a two-month contract with the Greek League club Aris, in order to replace Pierre Pierce, who was sidelined for two months.

On August 5, 2011, Brown signed with the German League team EWE Baskets Oldenburg.

Montepaschi Siena

On August 8, 2012, Brown signed a one-year contract with the Italian League team Montepaschi Siena. He replaced 2011–12 Alphonso Ford top scoring trophy winner Bo McCalebb, who joined Fenerbahçe Ülker a week before. He won the Euroleague 2012–13 Alphonso Ford Trophy, averaging 18.8 points per game. He was also fourth in the Euroleague in assists, with an average of 5.3 per game, and led the league in several other parameters.

On January 4, 2013, Brown scored 41 points in a 98–92 comeback win over Fenerbahçe Ülker. He tied the Euroleague's single-game scoring record since the 2000–01 season. He was eventually named the Euroleague MVP of the Month for January. In April of 2013, Brown won the Euroleague Alphonso Ford Trophy, the annual award given to the Euroleague's "Best Scorer" of the season. He averaged 18.8 points, 5.3 assists, and 1.7 rebounds per game, over a total of 24 games during the 2012-13 season, while shooting .411 from the field. He scored in double figures in 22 games, reached the 20-point mark on 10 occasions, and got to 30 points twice.

Dongguan Leopards

In the summer of 2013, Brown signed with the Dongguan Leopards of China. On December 27, 2013, he scored 74 points in a 137-135 overtime victory over the Sichuan Blue Whales. He would score the second-highest amount of points in the Chinese Basketball Association's history, being one point shy from breaking the record that was held by Quincy Douby, which has since been eclipsed by Errick McCollum's 82 point effort on January 30, 2015.

On May 22, 2014, Brown extended his contract with Dongguan for three more years.

Personal

Brown shares the same name with the famous American R&B singer. In an interview, he affirmed jokes about his name: "Someone is always trying to be funny...asking me where Whitney's at." Upon announcing his signing with the Kings, ESPN ran the headlines "Their prerogative: Kings agree with Bobby Brown", and "New addition: Sources say Kings agree to deal with Brown", in reference to the singer's 1988 anthem "My Prerogative", and his former boy band New Edition, respectively.
