MarShon Brooks was a late first round pick in the 2011 draft, and while he showed potential as a scorer with a very bad Nets team in his rookie season, he’s bounced around ever since, and hasn’t shown the requisite amount of improvement to earn a spot on an NBA roster.
He’ll get the chance to showcase what he can do while playing overseas instead.
He’s largely been an asset that’s been passed around over the past couple of years more than anything else. Brooks was traded from the Nets to the Celtics last summer in the deal that sent Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett to Brooklyn, then was dealt from Boston to Golden State in January as part of a three-team deal with the Heat that sent mostly uninspiring players to each respective team.
Brooks posted his best numbers since his rookie season while in Los Angeles, and averaged 6.4 points on a career-best 48.9 percent shooting in 12.7 minutes per contest, albeit in just 18 total appearances.
It was reported that Brooks most recently drew interest from the Indiana Pacers in the wake of the injury to Paul George, but obviously that didn’t get very far if signing overseas was the eventual decision.
