MIAMI (AP) — The G League MVP is now eligible for the NBA playoffs.
The Toronto Raptors converted guard Lorenzo Brown’s contract to a standard NBA deal on Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time), meaning he’ll be available to them in the postseason that starts this weekend.

He averaged 18.8 points and 8.9 assists for Raptors 905 this season on his way to winning the G League MVP. In 14 appearances with Toronto this season entering Wednesday (Thursday, PHL time), Brown has averaged 2.3 points and 1.1 rebounds.
