No, this isn’t 1990 all over again. Damone Brown was recently chosen with the #1 pick in the D-League expansion draft. He’ll be suiting up for the Reno (NV) Bighorns. Damone began last year with the D-League’s Sioux Falls squad after missing out on a roster spot in Utah; later in the season he left to join a pro team in Holland. The year before he also split his time, starting the year in Japan before joining Sioux Falls in midwinter. The D-League won’t really get going until the NBA has made its final roster cuts and the personnel issues all settle out. But it sounds like we can expect Damone to be one of the lead players for Reno this season. Reno is affiliated with the Knicks and the Kings, so if Donte Greene is deemed unready by Sacramento he very well may join Damone in Nevada for a while this year. Once the rest of the former Orangemen who are playing around the globe get their situations settled (including the ones in NBA camps who may end up not making it onto a roster), we’ll do a big rundown of everyone’s status.
