BasketNews wrote a story about John Brown and his path to becoming the EuroLeague sensation.

Brown had recently agreed with the Perth Wildcats, but the NBL has denied his application to play in the league this season.

The 30-year-old American couldn't get the Letter of Clearance issued on time by the March 26 deadline.

Although Perth Wildcats requested to reconsider Brown's case due to extraordinary circumstances that delayed the issue of his Letter of Clearance, the NBL didn't make an exception.
