2011 NBA Mock Draft: Minnesota Timberwolves Select Marshon Brooks with 20th Pick
Weight: 195 lbs.
Comparison: Jordan Crawford/Josh Howard
Brooks needs to work on his shooting and his ability to get his teammates involved, but he definitely has a ton of skill.
You can't help but be impressed by Brooks' college numbers. As a senior playing in the Big East, he averaged 24.6 points and seven rebounds a game while shooting 48 percent from the field.
He's a little undersized for his position, but his length should help him overcome that. He has a crazy 7'1" wingspan.
A few weeks ago, many experts thought Brooks might not even get drafted this year. But he's been soaring up the draft boards lately.
World-renowned trainer Tim Grover has been working with Brooks and has compared him to Kobe Bryant.
Minnesota can definitely upgrade at shooting guard, and Brooks seems like a great high-risk, high-reward pick.
