He played basketball at Louisiana Tech University.
In his first three seasons in the NBA, from 1993 to 1996, he played in 240 regular season games for the New Jersey Nets and increased his starts from 54 games in the 1994 season to 63 in the 1995 season before starting in all 81 games that he appeared in the 1996 campaign. The Nets made the playoffs in 1994, and Brown appeared in 4 first round playoff games as New Jersey was eliminated by the New York Knicks. That season also featured Brown participating in the 1994 Rookie Challenge during NBA All-Star Weekend.
In addition to increasing his playing time Brown also increased his scoring average each year, and in the 1996 season he would average a then career high 11.3 points with 6.9 rebounds a game. The Nets however did not reach the post-season in both his second and third year with the team. In the 1996 offseason he would sign as a free agent with the Miami Heat.
On August 1, 2000, Brown, alongside Jamal Mashburn, Otis Thorpe, Tim James and Rodney Buford, was traded to the Charlotte Hornets in exchange for Eddie Jones, Anthony Mason, Dale Ellis and Ricky Davis. In 2000–01, his first season with the Hornets, Brown was selected to his 3rd NBA All-Defensive Second Team. In 2001–02, he was chosen as the Central Division recipient of the NBA Sportsmanship Award. The Hornets relocated to New Orleans prior to the 2002–03 season, where Brown had his best scoring seasons, averaging 10.6 points per game in 240 regular season games from 2002 to 2005.
On July 13, 2006, Brown was traded by the New Orleans/Oklahoma City Hornets along with guard J.R. Smith to the Chicago Bulls in exchange for center Tyson Chandler. He played well as a veteran with the young team, starting the majority of his games, though he scored in meager proportions, and only averaged a career-low of 20.2 minutes per game.
On February 27, 2008, after resting for most of the 2007–08 season and weighing his options, Brown signed with the Boston Celtics for the remainder of the season, in order to bolster their front court. His decision to come to Boston was strongly aided by a conversation with future teammates Ray Allen and Paul Pierce, who convinced him to sign with the Celtics during the 2008 NBA All-Star Weekend. The San Antonio Spurs and New Orleans Hornets were interested in his services, but he chose the Celtics instead. He made his debut against the Chicago Bulls, his former team, on March 7, 2008.
Brown had an unexpected breakout performance which took place in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals against the Cleveland Cavaliers on May 18, 2008, when he scored 10 points and pulled down 6 rebounds, hitting all of his four shots and making key contributions in the 4th quarter. He hit a key shot with less than two minutes left in the game as the Celtics went on to win the game 97-92. After the game, he told reporters: "That shot, hey, probably I would say the biggest shot of my career". He also had a strong performance in Game 1 of the 2008 NBA Finals against the Los Angeles Lakers on June 5, 2008, playing increased minutes in the first Finals game of his 15-year career en route to a Celtics victory. He retired at the end of that season with a championship.
