Timing is everything, as they say, and the timing is tough for Bobby Brown at the moment. Despite all the NBA opportunity that has arisen from the endless rash of point guard injuries, and despite the fact that the 29-year-old is on the short list of worthy talents to fill one of the many voids, he can't get out of his contract with Dongguan in China until their season ends on Feb. 16. Brown hasn't played in the NBA since 2010, but anyone who pays attention to the famed Drew League in Los Angeles during the summer months knows that he's an NBA talent. In China, he's nothing short of a star, as he's averaging 31.9 points and 5.8 assists per game. The Clippers, who are likely without point guard Chris Paul until after the mid-February All-Star break because of a shoulder injury, are known to have interest in Brown. USA Today Sports

How was that phone call when you were told Ukraine wanted you? PJ: My agent Andre Buck told me 'Yo, this is getting serious, man'. I really thought about it and all my friends told me I should do it. You are going out there, you're going to play basketball, even though you are away from home... Get that experience, playing for coach Fratello. Go for it. Everybody was pushing me to do it: Baron Davis, Bobby Brown, Brandon Heath, Trevor Ariza... HoopsHype

The American guard talked to Eurohoops about the new challenge he has in his career, his goal at the CBA and he admits he was on advanced discussion with Olympiacos –before Vasilis Spanoulis signed his new contract- and Barcelona. He also states that someday he will play at the NBA. “Yes I’m very happy with my decision to go to China, it will be and new challenge and experience for me and I’m ready for it. I expect to go there and try to win a championship, that’s my goal on any team I’m on. I expect to go there and be vocal and lead by example leader, It will be different as far as the culture of there but I’ m able to adjust to anything as long as I’m playing basketball”. Did he talk with anybody who knew about CBA, before he signed? “I spoke to one of my good friends Pooh Jeter who plays over there and he was telling me how the league. I know we have a great coach who knows his stuff about basketball. Also helps that he speaks English because he is from Australia (Brian Goorjian, the ex – head coach of the Boomers). EuroHoops.net
