Spurs sign unrestricted free agent forward Derrick Brown.
Brown has been an effective player for the Bobcats, averaging a career-high eight points last season. The deal isn't guaranteed, but it does sound like Brown is expected to make the team, where he would be a role player off the bench.

The Bobcats have withdrawn a qualifying offer to F Derrick Brown, making him an unrestricted free agent.
With high-profile rookies Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Jeff Taylor on board, along with veteran Reggie Williams, there really wasn't room for Brown on the new-look Bobcats.

Derrick Brown was given a qualifying offer by the Bobcats on Friday.
Brown was the preferred SF option for the Bobcats down the stretch, but with the acquisition of Michael Kidd-Gilchrist he'll be pegged for a backup role sooner rather than later. As one of the Bobcats' better players, the move gives them better flexibility as they try to retain their depth.

Derrick Brown (ankle) will not play on Thursday against the Knicks, and Tyrus Thomas will start in his place.
Thomas is a deep league desperation play, at best, and look for D.J. White to get a few extra minutes. Matt Carroll could also be worth a look in deep leagues for his 3-point shooting. Otherwise, it's possible the Bobcats go with a small lineup in their attempt to avoid history, which would benefit Kemba Walker.

Derrick Brown had 16 points, five rebounds and two steals on 6-of-11 shooting on Wednesday, but left the game late with a sprained right ankle.
Brown's ankle has been a mess for a couple weeks now, and he could miss Thursday's finale against the Knicks with the injury. The Bobcats lost for the 22nd straight time tonight, and will finish with the worst winning percentage in NBA history if they can't beat the Knicks tomorrow. Tyrus Thomas is a potential starter if Brown can't go.

Derrick Brown scored eight points on 4-of-7 shooting with seven rebounds and a steal in 26 minutes on Monday.
Brown has been dealing with an ankle injury while providing low-end value over the past few weeks. His production has slipped a bit recently due to that ankle injury, but with two more games to go he's worth a look for fantasy owners.

Derrick Brown played through an ankle injury on Friday, scoring 11 points on 5-of-15 shooting with three rebounds and three assists in 38 minutes.
The Bobcats went all-out to win their final home game, and it wouldn't be surprising if Brown leaned into his bad wheel too hard. A low-end play with some value for his steals, owners will want to monitor him closely going forward.
