2012-13 Stats: 12.5 MPG, 5.4 PPG, 1.4 RPG, 46% FG, 27% 3PT (with Brooklyn Nets)
One of the most talented young scorers in game, MarShon Brooks was stashed on the bench for most of the 2012-13 season. Brooklyn Nets coaches Avery Johnson and P.J. Carlesimo weren't enamored with his defense, so he struggled to work his way into the rotation.
After the dust settled from the Nets' blockbuster trade with the Boston Celtics, Brooks found himself in position to earn substantial playing time. On Beantown's new-look team led by Brad Stevens, Brooks has a chance to be a featured wing scorer off the bench.
He could potentially see 20-25 minutes per game because he's one of the best shot-creators and shot-makers on the roster. Brooks has a knack for weaving his way to the rim when it seems impossible, and he also uses his tremendous length to generate jumpers.
You can bet he'll work hard to accompany this offensive prowess with a newfound defensive presence and awareness. He may never be a big-time stopper, but he certainly has the tools to improve as a team defender.
A change of scenery could translate to a breakthrough campaign for Boston's new arrival
