Markel Brown thinks he can play point guard for Brooklyn Nets

Brooklyn Nets

In an interview with his hometown paper, Markel Brown says that he has to cut down on his turnovers --averaging three a game in summer league-- but thinks if he does, he can handle the point in the NBA.

"I feel I can cut down on a lot of my turnovers," he said, "but that just comes with getting to know your teammates and things like that. I think the more reps I get with my teammates the less turnovers I’ll have," Brown told the Alexandria (LA) Town Talk.

Brown certainly proved unselfish in Orlando. He took only 34 shots in five games, never more than nine in a game. He also through some nifty passes, registering six in one game and averaging a little more than three a game.  The Nets, who see Brown as more of a shooting guard, would like to have seen him shoot more, considering he shot 52.9 percent overall and 40 percent from deep.

Now, Brown is back at Oklahoma State working out and waiting to hear from his agent about contract terms. The Nets are expected to sign him soon, most likely to a guaranteed minimum deal, worth about a half million dollars in the first year. The Nets have already invested $1.1 million in Brown, the cost of buying a pick at No. 44.

"I think I did pretty well, did well enough to earn a roster spot," Brown said. "Hopefully, my game took care of that."
