Top Troy Brown Jr. News

  • Pistons' Troy Brown: Increase in minutes

    Brown is averaging 5.0 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.2 assists in his five appearances since being traded to the Pistons from the Timberwolves on Feb. 7.

    The 24-year-old has bounced around the league since 2020, landing on his fifth team in four seasons. Going from the Timberwolves to the last-place Pistons, Brown was seeing an uptick in minutes from 11.0 to 14.8 per game. However, the return of Isaiah Stewart (ankle) plus the logjam at forward with Ausar Thompson, Simone Fontecchio and Evan Fournier all expected to get minutes likely means Brown could see a significant decrease in playing time.

  • Pistons' Troy Brown: Good to go Saturday

  • Pistons' Troy Brown: Iffy for Saturday

    Brown (trade pending) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Clippers.

    The Pistons acquired Brown from Minnesota at the deadline, but he'll have a tough time competing for minutes in Detroit as they have a logjam at the forward positions.

  • Pistons' Troy Brown: Headed to Detroit

    The Pistons acquired Brown, Shake Milton and a future second-round pick from the Timberwolves on Wednesday in exchange for Monte Morris, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Brown has been an inconsistent part of Minnesota's rotation this season, averaging 4.2 points and 1.9 rebounds in 11.1 minutes across 37 appearances. However, the 24-year-old forward has proven to be a quality outside shooter, converting 36.9 percent of his 2.3 three-point attempts per contest in 2023-24. Brown will likely compete for bench minutes on a rebuilding Pistons team. It's unclear when the trade will be finalized, but Brown will presumably miss Wednesday's game in Sacramento and Thursday's contest in Portland, making Saturday's matchup against the Clippers a likely debut date.

  • Timberwolves' Troy Brown: Moves to bench

    Brown will move to the bench for Thursday's game against Dallas.

    Jaden McDaniels is returning to the starting lineup after missing the past eight games with an ankle injury. Brown fared well in that span, averaging 10.4 points, 3.9 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 2.3 three-pointers. Moving forward, Brown could struggle to find consistent minutes with the Timberwolves getting healthier.

  • Timberwolves' Troy Brown: Modest outing in starting lineup

    Brown closed with five points (2-9 FG, 1-7 3Pt), six rebounds and two assists in 27 minutes during Monday's 121-107 loss to New Orleans.

    With Anthony Edwards (hip) out, Brown entered the starting lineup. Brown has provided the Timberwolves with depth contributions this season, and he has stepped up even more as of late, averaging 8.8 points, 3.7 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 23.1 minutes over his last 10 outings.

  • Timberwolves' Troy Brown: Joins starting five

    Brown is starting Monday's game against the Pelicans,

    Troy Brown will get a chance to run with the first unit with Anthony Edwards (hip) ruled out and Jaden McDaniels set to come off the bench. Brown's last start dates back to Dec. 2 against Charlotte when he put up nine points to go along with three boards, one assist and one steal in 32 minutes.

  • Timberwolves' Troy Brown: Heads back to bench

    Brown will rejoin the reserves for Wednesday's game against the Spurs.

    Brown made a pair of consecutive starts with Anthony Edwards (hip) sidelined, but he'll return to the bench with Edwards back in action. Through 13 games off the bench, Brown is averaging 4.2 points and 2.8 rebounds across 11.2 minutes.

  • Timberwolves' Troy Brown: Starting against Utah

    Brown is in the starting unit to play against the Jazz on Thursday.

    Brown will move to the starting lineup due to Anthony Edwards (hip) being ruled out, and this will be the first time this season Brown will play in the first unit. He's averaging 4.2 points and 2.8 rebounds per game.

  • Timberwolves' Troy Brown: Season high in win

    Brown posted 17 points (5-6 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 4-6 FT) and three rebounds over 21 minutes in a 106-103 win over the Thunder on Tuesday.

    Tuesday's contest marked Brown's second outing logging over 20 minutes, and he did not disappoint, supplying a remarkably efficient scoring performance. While Brown's increased usage stemmed from a hip injury to Anthony Edwards that forced him out of the game in the third quarter and the ongoing absence of Jaden McDaniels (ankle), Brown certainly took advantage of the opportunity and could continue to see increased playing time moving forward.

  • Timberwolves' Troy Brown: Plays season-high 17 minutes

    Brown ended Monday's 117-100 victory over the Knicks with five points (1-5 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds and two assists over 17 minutes.

    Jaden McDaniels (ankle) left the contest after just four minutes, opening up more playing time for Nickeil Alexander-Walker and Brown. Alexander-Walker was the primary beneficiary, starting the second half in McDaniels' absence and ending with 33 minutes. However, Brown's role also increased, as he finished with season highs in points, rebounds, assists and minutes played. If McDaniels is forced to miss extended time, Brown could carve out a more consistent bench role, but he doesn't need to be on fantasy radars in standard leagues.

  • Timberwolves' Troy Brown: Perfect from charity stripe

    Brown chipped in four points (0-1 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four rebounds and one assist across five minutes during Wednesday's 110-89 victory over the Nuggets.

    Brown was a DNP-CD during Monday's loss to Atlanta, but he saw a handful of minutes off the bench Wednesday. He was efficient with his limited minutes but shouldn't be on fantasy radars at this point after he averaged just 1.3 points and 2.3 rebounds in 8.3 minutes per game over his first three games with the Timberwolves.

  • Timberwolves' Troy Brown: Hauls in seven rebounds

    Brown totaled six points (2-6 FG, 2-5 3Pt), seven rebounds and one assist in 18 minutes during Thursday's 111-99 preseason win over the Mavericks.

    Although Brown came off the bench during Thursday's preseason opener, he was relatively efficient from beyond the arc and also contributed on the boards in the win. He made 76 appearances (45 starts) for the Lakers last year and averaged 7.1 points and 4.1 rebounds in 24.5 minutes per game. The 24-year-old should be in the mix to serve as one of the primary backups to Jaden McDaniels on the wing once the regular season gets underway.

  • Timberwolves' Troy Brown: Inks deal with Minnesota

    Brown agreed to a deal with the Timberwolves on Friday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    While the terms of the contract are yet to be announced, Brown will be headed to Minnesota after spending the previous season with the Lakers. In 2022-23, he averaged 7.1 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 24.5 minutes across 76 appearances. Brown also shot 38.1 percent on 3.7 three-point attempts per game and should be a solid bench piece for the Timberwolves.
