OK, not to insult anyone's intelligence here, but chances are most of you have not heard of Craig Brackins.
He was originally drafted by the Oklahoma City Thunder in the first round of the 2010 draft, but was then shipped out to the Hornets, and finally brought to Philly in the Willie Green trade.
Brackins has only played three games in his whole career (all with the Sixers) averaging just 11 minutes each time. So basically, we don't have a good idea of what he can do in the league, but that does not mean he doesn't have potential.
He has spent the majority of his career in the D-League, but he has been dominating it. In fact, in 18 games played, he averaged over 20 points and almost nine rebounds per game. Impressive if you ask me.
But after all, it is the D-League, right? True. But Brackins, who has the ability to play the three and four slot, is a jack of all trades. He is very athletic, has a great long range jumper for his size and position, he can play defense and has good post skills.
Believe it or not, entering the draft his NBA comparison was LaMarcus Aldridge. Although I do not believe he will be as good, he does have a similar style of play.
The bottom line here is that Brackins is just 24 years old and has potential to be an effective player on this team. Whether it is him being the solution to the four spot when brand leaves, or if it just seem being a solid contributor off the bench.
