I suspect this all happened in concert with Horford's "injury". OKC management decided they wanted to pivot, gave Brown an ultimatum, they didn't like what they saw, and dumped the whole project to the C's who were willing buyers.I looked at Brown's game log for 2020-2021. He is a total nobody, racking up DNPs with abandon for the first 36 games of the season.
Then, after a long time being "inactive" he reappears on March 11th and begins a nice string of games. In the final 36 games of the season, he:
- scores 20 or more points 4 times,
- scores in double digits 18 times,
- rebounds in double digits 16 times, and
- has 14 rebounds or more 9 times.
The kid is still 21 years old. Let's see what the Celtics can do with him.
