Brown wisely seems to be taking this process seriously, as he spoke about wanting to spend his summer improvinghis game:

Brown is a decisive player in this draft. His poor shooting is an enormous red flag in terms of his ceiling as an NBA player, but judging by his comments, he has the right mentality and is dedicated to working hard to improve his game.

One thought

  1. I am Danny’s biggest critic but I think he did a really good job last night. Have you seen the tape on Brown, he is VERY Athletic something the Celtics are sorely lacking to compete at the next level. Danny has to a fault avoided the international players that other successful teams have employed, got two with great potential. Took two from an overload of second round picks and turned it into a down the road first. That is very Patriot like. Never thought I would say, good job Danny. the trades you don’t make sometimes turn out to be the best ones.
