Jaylen Brown posted a team-high 15 points, three rebounds, three assists, two steals and a trey in 24 minutes of the 2017 NBA Africa Game on Saturday.
He also recorded a game-high five turnovers, but we can let that go as this was more of an exhibition game than anything. He spent a lot of time above the rim with some vicious dunks on his Team Africa opponents. No one has ever doubted his athleticism and he has the tools to become a very capable NBA player. He should be getting more minutes at the Celtics this year with Avery Bradley traded away to the Pistons. The starting lineup is still unknown, but Brown figures to play a lot more than last year and could even pursue a starting spot on the team. His upside makes him worth a late-round flier towards the end of drafts.
