Bobby Brown (born September 24, 1984 in Los Angeles, California) is an American professional basketball player under contract with the New Orleans Hornets of the NBA.

Brown is a 6'2" (188 cm) 175 lb (79 kg) point guard and played collegiately at California State University, Fullerton. Previously, he attended L.A.'s Westchester High School, playing alongside future NBA players Trevor Ariza and Hassan Adams.[2]

Brown left Cal State Fullerton in 2007 but ultimately went undrafted by any NBA team. He signed with German team ALBA Berlin in August 2007,[3] whom he helped win the national league.[4] He was also a participant in a five-overtime ULEB Cup game in which he top-scored with 44 points, the second-highest total ever in the competition.[5]

In 2008, Brown returned to the U.S. and played for the New Orleans Hornets in the Summer League, his highlight being a game-winning shot against the Charlotte Bobcats in a 77–75 win.[6]

He was rewarded for his stellar play by his offering of a two-year contract with the Sacramento Kings, one of a handful of NBA teams that courted him.[4] He was also pursued by multiple overseas teams that had offered him lucrative deals, among them Israeli league's Maccabi Tel-Aviv.[4] He also came close to accepting a multi-year contract "in the millions" from the Spanish league's FC Barcelona.[4]

On February 19, 2009, he was traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves along with Sheldon Williams in exchange for Rashad McCants and Calvin Booth.[7]

On September 9, 2009, he was traded to the New Orleans Hornets along with Darius Songaila in exchange for Antonio Daniels and a 2014 second round pick.[8]

Brown shares the same name with the famous American R&B singer. In an interview, he affirmed jokes about his name: "Someone is always trying to be funny...asking me where Whitney's at."[2] Upon announcing his signing with the Kings, ESPN ran the headlines "Their prerogative: Kings agree with Bobby Brown", and "New addition: Sources say Kings agree to deal with Brown",[9] in reference to the singer's 1988 anthem "My Prerogative", and his former boy band New Edition, respectively.
