Fresh face

Chicago Sun-Times - - Sports Bulls 96, Thunder 86 -

Devin Brown, ac­quired in a trade with the New Orleans Hor­nets for backup cen­ter Aaron Gray, ar­rived in Ok­la­homa City on Tues­day and suited up Wed­nes­day for the first time as a Bull.

‘‘Any­time you come to a new team in the mid­dle of the sea­son,’’ Brown said, ‘‘they’re go­ing through their grind just like other teams, and sud­denly you wake up and get on the bus, and it’s all new faces.’’

Brown said he brings a de­fen­sive mind-set and out­side shoot­ing to the Bulls.

‘‘He hasn’t prac­ticed; he doesn’t know the plays,’’ coach Vinny Del Ne­gro said ‘‘We’re on a tough road trip, so we’ll stay with our ro­ta­tion un­less there’s foul trou­ble or in­juries. Hope­fully, we’ll get him sit­u­ated here within the next few days.’’
