   2017 NBA Manifesto

Jaylen Brown
SF, 6’7, 225lbs, 20 years old, 1 year of experience

Not a huge amount to show for his rookie season, though he won trust and a steady rotation spot as the year went on, particularly defensively, where his greatest potential lies. The short leash speaks to how much there is to learn, especially on a team with particularly complicated schemes at either end. Nevertheless, Brown should be back doing right what he did before - backing up on the wing positions initially, defending three positions and trying to pick some spots without the ball offensively, potentially growing into the starting role of what is a winnable spot in the line-up next season. Needs a summer in the weight room and film room, interspersed with shooting drills, to reach what is a very high ceiling.

Player Plan: Three years of rookie salary scale remaining. Several years of enormous ceiling left. Keep, play, develop.

Brown’s price continues to tickle upwards, but he also continues to start at shooting guard, and there is no obvious threat to replace him there. This is especially true when considering he is averaging 15.4 points and 5.9 rebounds per game thus far. Marcus Morris might return tonight, and his return will affect a forward rotation already in some flux after Gordon Hayward’s injury, but these injuries have also served to give an opportunity to Brown, who has seized it to become a consistent, cheap producer.

A regular piece on this list, the return of Marcus Morris last time out seems not to have affected Brown, whose 31 minutes, 10 points and 12 rebounds are a steal at this price.

Marcus Morris should be back tonight, and the continued good play of Terry Rozier and Semi Ojeleye makes the whole Celtics rotation between shooting guard and power forward unclear going forward. Nevertheless, averaging 16.3 points and 5.9 rebounds per game, Brown has done nothing to lose his minutes, and won’t.

Brown’s price still has not yet gone up significantly, and thus his value remains. With a 10 point, 12 rebound performance in the last game, his season averages are now up to 15.6 points and 6.6 rebounds per game on the season. You cannot get that for elsewhere at this price. Brown’s scoring opportunities have gone down since the returns from injury of Marcus Morris, Marcus Smart and others, but he is producing anyway.
