Quantcast

Though I wasn't a fan of Danny Ainge's KG-Pierce trade, I was pleased with his last minute alteration to acquire 24 year-old Marshon Brooks. The 6'5" shooting guard has a skillset that some have even called Kobe-esque (not saying he's the next Kobe), and his 7'1" wingspan allows him to get his shot off even when heavily guarded. He only played 13 minutes a game for the Nets last season, but he had a strong Rookie campaign the year before averaging 13 points on 29 mpg.

Brooks needs to get stronger to really excel on dribble drives, but he's already an intriguing young talent. He gives head coach Brad Stevens more versatility, and his scoring adds backcourt depth since Avery Bradley often struggles on offense. Brooks is set to make just over a million dollars next season, and with 3 more years under contract, he could prove to be a bargain. He's a low risk player with nice upside and solid value if Ainge looks to make a trade package.




What do you think of Marshon Brooks? Just another limited reserve or an exciting piece for the future? Sound off in the comments below.
