Career highlights and awards

DeCovan Kadell "Dee" Brown (born November 29, 1968, in Jacksonville, Florida) is a retired American professional basketball player who spent twelve seasons (1990–2002) in the NBA, playing for the Boston Celtics, Toronto Raptors, and Orlando Magic.

A 6'1" (1.85 m) guard from Jacksonville University, Brown was selected by the Celtics with the 19th pick of the 1990 NBA Draft. He was a member of the NBA All-Rookie Team in his first year, when he played in all 82 games and averaged 8.7 points per game. One of the highlights of his career occurred in 1991, when he won the NBA Slam Dunk Contest with a "no-look" slam dunk. He was a starter for Boston during the 1993-94 and 1994-95 seasons and posted his best scoring numbers, averaging more than 15 points per game each of those years. After seven and a half seasons with the Celtics, he was traded to the Raptors along with Chauncey Billups in 1998. Overall, during his career, he scored 6,758 total points.

Brown later served roles in the Women's National Basketball Association first as a head coach for the Orlando Miracle and then as the head coach for the San Antonio Silver Stars.[1] In 2005 he won a one-year contract as a studio analyst for ESPN as the winner of the reality show Dream Job, defeating former Houston Rocket Matt Bullard.[2] He went on to host a ESPN show called City Slam!.

In 2005, Brown established EDGE Basketball, LLC with himself as CEO. The outfit specializes in training players from middle school up to the professional ranks.

On July 29, 2009, Brown was named as the head coach of the Springfield Armor, a team in the NBA Developmental League[3]. He is also concurrently the team's Director of Basketball Operations[4].
