Per TMZ, West and Brown have a close relationship and Ye made him an official offer while attending the Warriors vs. Celtics game back in March.
On and off the court, Brown is one of the rising stars of the NBA. The six-year player and one-time all-star averaged 23.6 PPG, with a 47.3 field-goal percentage this season. He made a name for himself with his public demonstrations of social justice. In his native state of Georgia, he helped to organize protests over the police shootings of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor in 2020.
“I drove 15 hours to get to Georgia, my community,” Brown said. “This is a peaceful protest. Being a celebrity, being an NBA player, don’t exclude me from no conversations at all. First and foremost, I’m a Black man and I’m a member of this community. […] We’re raising awareness for some of the injustices that we’ve been seeing. It’s not OK.”
Along with Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald who signed with the agency on Monday, Brown is the second major sports star to be represented by Donda Sports.
