He's got potential, great length and athleticism and can even knock down a three. lacks strength though.

I think the Bobcats should bring him back. Seems Silas and Oakley don't like him because he's not strong and it seems he's sort of stuck between the 3 and the 4 where he's not skilled enough to be a 3 but not strong enough to be a 4.

Either way he's a player and I've seen mostly positive play from him he's just never given consistent minutes.

He'd be a steal for a team that likes to run, I think the Suns should pick him up.

Sometimes he looks lost out there. I could never quite figure out which style would suit him best. There's no question he can jump out of the gym and finish around the basket, but what about his defense? Does he have the skillset to operate within a half-court set and not camp out in the lane or stick the chicken wing out on a screen and get the offensive foul? One thing's for sure, he needs more development, and with a healthy Tyrus Thomas plus Dante Cunningham, he may find better opportunities elsewhere.

Looks like D-Brown is a Knick.

I feel like Cunningham and Brown have similar skill sets. Both were taken in the same draft ('09) and Cunningham seems to be further ahead in his development. Tough to see him go, but its easier when we have a more servicable replacement.

We need someone to back up Jac. Wheather Brown was going to be that guy or not I'm not sure. But who ever we get need to fill the SF/SG slot.
