Brown said Wednesday he's officially retired.
"My career ended June 17," Brown said of the day he became a world champion when the Boston Celtics defeated the Los Angeles Lakers for the 2008 NBA title.
"There's still some interest out there," said Brown, 39. "I'm reading the internet and reading the papers and there's rumors floating, but I won't return. I'm moving on. I'm looking forward to the next chapter in my life. (The Hornets) asked, just kind of feeling me out as to where I was. Boston and a couple of other teams (asked). But like I told everybody, I'm officially done. My career is definitely over.
