No it will not brick your phone. If your phone's bootloader is locked, it will simply not let you flash a custom recovery. If its unlocked, then it'll flash the custom recovery.

Ensure that update CM recovery in developer options is disabled (to enable the menu, tap build # 10 times in about phone and then go back into developer options)
