MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - The Memphis Grizzlies announced the signing Friday of free agent Andre Brown, who spent last season with Seattle.

"Andre is hard working, an excellent teammate, hungry, rebounds well, and excels at running the floor," said Grizzlies general manager Chris Wallace.

Brown, a 6-9, 245-pound forward, averaged 2.4 points, 1.9 rebounds and 7.1 minutes in 38 games with the SuperSonics.

He began the season with the Sioux Falls Skyforce of the NBA developmental league where he averaged 22.8 points and 10.8 rebounds in 16 games.

Brown attended DePaul University and was in the top 10 on the all-time rebounding list.
