CLEVELAND — The Browns are honoring Hall of Fame running back Jim Brown with a statue outside their stadium.
Considered one of the greatest players in NFL history, Brown said he’s humbled by the honor which was announced on his 80th birthday. The sculpture of Brown will be unveiled outside FirstEnergy Stadium later this year.
Brown spent his entire career with the Browns, who drafted him in 1957. A nine-time Pro Bowl selection and three-time league MVP, Brown finished with 12,312 yards before retiring in 1965 at the peak of his career. He led the league in rushing in eight of his nine seasons.
His iconic No. 32 was retired by Cleveland. Brown was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1971.
Brown has worked as a special adviser to owners Jimmy and Dee Haslam for the past few years.

CHARLOTTE — The Charlotte Hornets acquired veteran swingman Courtney Lee from the Grizzlies in a three-team trade that will help bolster the team’s perimeter shooting and defense after losing Michael Kidd-Gilchrist for the season to a shoulder injury.
The Grizzlies got forward P.J. Hairston from Charlotte and big man Chris Andersen and two second-round draft picks from the Heat, who will get guard Brian Roberts from Charlotte.
The three teams confirmed the trade Tuesday night.
