Bruce Brown Jr. signs two-year, $45 million deal with Pacers

Bruce Brown has signed a two-year, $45 million deal with the Indians Pacers. Brown moves on from Denver after winning the title.

Fantasy Impact

Brown was a big part of Denver’s run to the Finals and eventual championship ring. Brown had a career-high in points per game last season and will look to build on that in Indiana. He joins a talented backcourt of Tyrese Haliburton and Benedict Mathurin. With Brown’s addition, there may be a redundancy of guards, so Indiana might not be done making moves.

Bruce Brown Jr. expected to meet with Mavericks

Bruce Brown intends to meet with the Mavericks soon after the opening of free agency on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Brown figures to have a pretty big market in free agency with the Lakers and Mavericks being the two teams seemingly most interested. The Nuggets will also hope to bring him back, but they're only able to offer him a contract worth $7.8 million and it seems like Brown is seeking a bigger contract.

Bruce Brown Jr. could be targeted by the Lakers

One team with significant interest in signing Bruce Brown away from Denver is the Los Angeles Lakers

Fantasy Impact

Singer added the Lakers could offer Brown the full mid-level exception ($12.3M annually). Meanwhile, the Nuggets can only offer up to $7.8M this year. It sounds like Brown should have a decent market as he looks to test free agency after declining his player option.

Bruce Brown declines $6.8 million player option

Bruce Brown declined his $6.8 million player option and will enter free agency. While he’s now able to receive offers from other teams, a return to Denver is still possible.

Fantasy Impact

In the 2022-23 season, Brown averaged a career-high in assists and points per game at 3.4 and 11.5 respectively to go along with 4.1 rebounds and 1.1 steals a game. He was a key player in the Nuggets’ playoff run and looks to be in for a nice deal this off-season wherever he signs.

Bruce Brown Jr. goes off for a season-high 31 points Thursday

Bruce Brown dropped a season-high 31 points (11-18 FG, 0-1 3P, 9-9 FT), six rebounds, and four assists in Thursday's narrow 119-115 loss to the Suns.

Fantasy Impact

Denver elected to sit their entire starting unit for Thursday’s game since they’re already locked in as the top dogs in the West. Brown took full advantage of the added responsibility and took over as the team’s top-scoring option. His game-high 31 points were also a season-high for the fifth-year vet, and he did it on an efficient 50% from the field to go along with 100% from the foul line. However, Brown is a super important piece to the Nugget’s Championship aspirations, so it’s entirely possible his minutes will be shaved to round out their final two regular season games.
