Celtics Assign MarShon Brooks To Maine Red Claws

A couple of days ago, reports surfaced that Rajon Rondo might play for the Maine Red Claws before making his NBA debut — a possibility most applauded, as it would continue to build ties between the NBA and its D-League system. Today, the Celtics have announced that a different guard will be playing for the Red Claws — little-used shooting guard MarShon Brooks.

From the Celtics website this afternoon:

The Boston Celtics announced today that they have assigned guard MarShon Brooks to their NBA Development League affiliate, the Maine Red Claws.

Brooks, a 6’5” guard, has appeared in nine games for the Celtics this season posting averages of 3.2 points and 1.6 rebounds in 6.8 minutes per game.

This isn’t exactly surprising. Brooks hasn’t been disappointing in his time on the court, but his minutes have been severely limited by Courtney Lee’s re-emergence as a productive basketball player (according to SportVU data, Lee is leading the league in field goal percentage on pull-up jumpers). Brooks could be a useful player — he has a good handle, plenty of confidence as a shooter and excellent length — but he needs time and touches and with Boston still clinging to the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs, he isn’t likely to get them any time soon.

The next eight games will be telling, as the Celtics face easily the toughest stretch in their schedule so far. A brutal Western Conference road trip may send this squad reeling, and if it does, don’t be surprised if Danny starts making calls regarding Lee and Brandon Bass again. If he does, there’s a good chance Brooks will not only be back with the Celtics, but also that he will get consistent minutes as the first guard off the bench behind Avery Bradley.

Also worth noting: Brooks once dropped 52 points in a college game, meaning he might end up setting the D-League on fire. All Red Claws games (as well as every other D-League game) are streamed on the D-League YouTube channel, in case you might be interested in watching Brooks torch players who might never play in the NBA.

    I thought he was the best net coming our way. Maybe that is hump, but this guy can play.

    I’m hoping he gets some confidence and some playing time under his belt.
    He seems like a player that we could use someday, either way I like this move
