Chucky Brown (born February 29, 1968 in New York, New York) was signed, as a free agent, by the Dallas Mavericks on November 11, 1993.

Brown attended North Carolina State where he scored 1,357 points in his four-year career. He led the Wolf Pack in scoring and field goal percentage in 1987-1988 and in rebounding the following season. North Carolina State won the ACC tournament in 1987, defeating then number one North Carolina and advanced to the NCAA tournament all four of Brown's seasons.

The 6'7 forward was drafted in the second round of the 1989 NBA draft by the Cleveland Cavaliers. It was with the Cavs that Brown scored his career high 30 points on January 6, 1990 against Orlando. During his NBA career Brown played for 12 different teams, a record he holds with former Maverick Jim Jackson and Tony Massenburg.

Dallas signed him as a free agent early in the 1993-1994 season and he appeared in exactly one game as a Mavericks player. He joined a group that includes Adrian Caldwell, Randell Jackson, Rodrick Rhodes, Joao Vianna and Mark Wade as the only players in franchise history to play in only one game for the team. In his one game he played just ten minutes while scoring three points.

Brown was waived twelve days after signing with Dallas and went on to play that season in the CBA. The following year he began the season with the CBA's Yakima Sun Kings, where he was named first team all-CBA while averaging 21.3 ppg but joined the NBA's Houston Rockets for the final two months of the season and was part of Houston's 1995 NBA Championship team.

He moved throughout the league the remainder of his career before retiring in 2002 after playing with the Sacramento Kings.

Following his playing career, Brown became an assistant coach in both the WBA and NBA D-League as well as working with the New Orleans Hornets in scouting.

He is now a writer/analyst with the 24/7 Sports Hub Network (www.247sportshub.com) and will have his own blog giving student-athletes advice on how to get into the NBA, the appropriate things to do, workout tips and analyzing the NBA.
