Here is what Markel Brown did on his first summer league play

Published

That’s what he did.

Then on the next play he hit a three. So if you’re scoring at home that’s a pretty good start. His final line against the Pacers looked like this: 9 points, 4 boards, 4 assists. Then against the Heat his line looked like this: 8 points, 2 boards, 6 assists. Solid back-to-back performances, albeit against inferior summer league competition.

Brown sounds kind of…chippy, though, in a good way.

“I feel like I was overlooked,” Brown said. “I feel like I should have been in the first round, but stuff happens, and I couldn’t be any more happy than where I landed. I feel like I’m in a perfect situation. I feel like I’m in a position where I can actually get on the court, so I’m going to make the best of it.”

I’m a tad more dubious given the plethora of Nets guards but Shaun Livingston just signed with the Warriors and Paul Pierce hangs in the balance.

The Nets might not be any good next season but at least Markel might make the squad.

Oh, and Nets-Thunder tonight on NBA TV at 6 PM.
