After being cut by the Washington Wizards in late October, former Michigan State standout Shannon Brown has landed another opportunity in the NBA with the San Antonio Spurs.
The 28-year old Brown signed a second 10-day contract with the Spurs on Wednesday and will be trying to hang around with the Southwest Division leaders.
Brown appeared in 59 games and made 22 starts with the Phoenix Suns last season before being traded to the Wizards in October. He was cut by Washington three days after the trade and didn’t return to the NBA until the injury-riddled Spurs recently signed him.
Here’s a look at how Brown and other former Spartans are faring in the pros.
