For someone who was drafted by Philadelphia and plays in Reno, it’s ironic that Damone Brown chose placid Buffalo in which to get in trouble. The NBA D-Leaguer was indicted this week by a federal grand jury in connection with a cocaine ring.
Brown is accused of leasing a safe deposit box where $170,000 in drug profits were held. Naturally, he was released by the Reno Bighorns, the D-League affiliate of the Kings and Knicks. He’s been released on his own recognizance pending a federal hearing, which means the Celtics can sign him before the deadline and have him available for the playoffs.
