Brooks Back in Rookie Top Three

New, comments

Drew Packham and Sebastian Pruiti are out with their latest rookie rankings and Marshon Brooks is once again at third in both. Only overall #1 pick Kyrie Irving and uber-point guard Ricky Rubio rank above the Nets shooting guard who was taken by the Celtics at #25, then immediately traded to the Nets.

Packham notes Brooks' consistency, pointing out that "he's now scored in double-digits in eight straight games and 11 of the 13 he's played". Pruiti, the stats geek, writes in Grantland about Brooks' efficiency and his new ability as a pick-and-roll instigator. "Brooks' efficiency comes from his ability to get to the free throw line. He draws shooting fouls on 23.1 percent of his pick-and-roll possessions," Pruiti writes.

One negative to report: Two players the Nets passed on in the early second round are now in one or both top tens: the Rockets' Chandler Parsons, taken at #38; and the Bucks' Jon Leuer, taken at #40. Jordan Williams, taken at #36, may get sent down to the Armor Wednesday, reports Fred Kerber.
