The 26-year-old spent time on loan this season with The Owls but the former Scotland boss wanted Lucas to stay at Deepdale while youngster Andy Lonergan is away on international duty with England Under-20's at the World Youth Championships in the United Arab Emirates.
"Managers are phoning up for players," Brown told the club's official website.
"Hull City phoned up for the loan of Lucas last week, but I couldn't let him go because Lonergan is away in Dubai (UAE).
"Sheffield Wednesday also wanted to extend his loan, but we couldn't let it happen."
