Early and collegiate
A native of Jamaica, Brown attended St. Elizabeth Technical High School. He then moved to the United States to attend the University of Mobile in Alabama. After his sophomore year, he transferred to the University of Central Florida. In 2013, he elected to forgo his senior year to enter the MLS SuperDraft.
Brown was selected by the Colorado Rapids with the sixth overall pick (first round) of the 2013 MLS SuperDraft on 17 January 2013. He scored his first professional goal on 16 March 2013 in a game against the Real Salt Lake. The goal came in the 37th minute and the game resulted in a 1–1 tie. During the 2013 season, Brown achieved many accomplishments. He earned the 2013 Rapids Golden Boot award leading the team with 10 goals and also lead all MLS rookies in scoring as well, just one shy of the MLS rookie scoring record. Brown finished second behind teammate Dillon Powers for MLS Rookie of the Year. He also scored the third-fastest goal in MLS history after just 15 seconds in the 5–1 win against Seattle on 5 October.
Brown moved from the Tampa Bay Rowdies to D.C. United on 20 June 2017 after the Houston Dynamo traded away their spot in the Major League Soccer allocation order. On 28 November 2017 his contract option with United was declined.
On 1 January 2020 Brown joined reigning Indian Super League Champions Bengaluru FC on a 1 and a half year deal through the end of the 2020–21 season.
Deshorn received his first call-up to Jamaica senior national on 7 October 2013 after scoring what was at the time the second fastest goal in MLS history. Brown scored his first international senior goal vs. Barbados on 2 March 2014.
