Henry Sims and Lorenzo Brown are headed back to the NBA


The Brooklyn Nets announced the signing of center Henry Sims to a 10-day contract.

Sims joined the Grand Rapids Drive of the NBA D-League this year, where he averaged 15.8 points and 8.8 rebounds in 30.0 minutes per game in 39 games (37 starts). The Baltimore native went undrafted in the 2012 NBA draft after a four-year collegiate career at Georgetown.

One day later, the Detroit Pistons signed guard Lorenzo Brown to a 10-day contract.

Brown, a 6-5, 189-pound guard holds NBA averages of 3.3 points, 2.3 assists, 1.7 rebounds and 13.2 minutes in 63 career games with the Philadelphia 76ers, Minnesota Timberwolves and Phoenix Suns. He was signed to two 10-day contracts with the Phoenix Suns this season and averaged 2.5 points, 1.4 assists, 0.9 rebounds and 7.6 minutes in eight games.

A second-round selection (52nd overall) by the Minnesota Timberwolves in the 2013 NBA Draft, Brown most recently played for the Detroit Pistons NBA Development League affiliate, the Grand Rapids Drive. In 25 contests with the Drive, he averaged 18.3 points, 5.9 assists, 5.5 rebounds and 2.1 steals.
