Brown returns to fill Suns' backcourt void
JUL 20, 2012 5:11p ET
Brown, who reportedly will sign a two-year contract with a player option for the second season, averaged a career-high 11 points during his first season in Phoenix. He demonstrated the ability to provide some much-needed punch by giving the Suns 18 points per game when an injury to Grant Hill opened up a spot in the starting lineup.
During that closing stretch, the 26-year-old former Michigan State star scored a career-high 32 points in a loss to the Spurs. Brown joins Jared Dudley as the only shooting guards on the Suns roster.
