2011 NBA Mock Draft: Comparing Expert Opinions, Timberwolves Get Marshon Brooks
2011 NBA Mock Draft Net Timberwolves a Scorer
Brooks doesn't even crack Chad Ford's Top 30 in his Mock Draft 1.1, however, this underrated talent will ultimately rise up in numerous draft boards before draft day. He's a scoring machine with incredibly long arms (7'2" wingspan), and very good handles.
On one hand, Brooks led the most competitive conference in basketball in scoring including a 43 point game against Georgetown and a 52 point game against Notre Dame. On the other hand, his team went 4-14 in conference play and he averaged more turnovers than assists... Brooks needs to improve on his complimentary skills such as spot up shooting and making the extra pass, but his overall ability to score will be an attractive asset for many teams looking for some extra fire power.
Should the T-Wolves end up with either Irving or Williams, there remains an opening at shooting guard on their roster. More importantly there's a need for a guy that can create his own shots.
He may be flying under the radar right now. But he's got a high enough ceiling that could make him a star in Minnesota.
My pick: Marshon Brooks, SG, Providence
Weight: 190 lbs
