Last season with the San Antonio Spurs and New York Knicks, Brown averaged 8.7 minutes and 2.2 points per game, both career lows. Brown did average double-digit points in each of the two prior seasons with the Phoenix Suns.

 There will be plenty of new faces on the Heat roster next season. Brown joins Luol Deng, Josh McRoberts, Danny Granger, Shawne Williams and Reggie Williams as new additions to the team.
