Rick Brunson

Has anyone been signed and/or played for more NBA teams than Rick Brunson? Here's his history as a journeyman:

Signed by Orlando Magic but did not play for them - 1 team
Signed by New York Knicks but did not play for them - 2 teams
Signed by Portland Trail Blazers - 3 teams
Signed by New York Knicks - Repeat; 3 teams
Signed by Miami Heat but did not play for them - 4 teams
Signed by Boston Celtics - 5 teams
Signed by New York Knicks - Repeat; 5 teams
Signed by Portland Trail Blazers - Repeat; 5 teams
Signed by Chicago Bulls - 6 teams
Signed by Toronto Raptors - 7 teams
Traded to Chicago Bulls - Repeat; 7 teams
Signed by Los Angeles Clippers - 8 teams

So, he has played for a total of eight different teams, and has switched teams 11 times in eight seasons. There used to be a site (http://www.rickbrunson.com) that parodied his tenure in the NBA before it got scared off the net by legal threats by the Chicago Bulls' lawyers. I think there's a cache of it somewhere, but where; I'm not sure.

I'll have to check, but I'm pretty sure Tony Massenburg (who once destroyed my high school team) has played for something like 6,000 teams.

He sure was a helluva player for Salem high school. Although Scoonie Penn might have been better.

Well counting only NBA teams, Massenburg beat Brunson by two for the amount of teams played for, while he beat Brunson by one in how many times he has switched teams.

But, you have to factor in that Massenburg has been playing since the 90-91 season, while Rick Brunson has only played since the 97-98 season. That's 13 seasons v. 8 seasons. If Rick Brunson switches teams each year until he reaches 13 seasons, he could very well beat Tony Massenburg's 'prestigious' record.

Chucky Brown - 12 Teams, 14 team switches in 12 seasons.
Tony Massenburg - 13 Teams, 12 team switches in 13 seasons and counting.
Rick Brunson - 11 Teams, 11 team switches in 8 seasons and counting.

I'm sorry, but I think that when it's all said and done, as long as he stays healthy, Rick Brunson is gonna take the cake in this category.
