Anthony Brown had played just 9 minutes for the Los Angeles Lakers since the team began the regular season, so instead of just letting him sit on the bench, the front office decided to send Brown down to the D-League to get some reps. Brown made his debut for the Lakers' D-League affiliate, the Los Angeles D-Fenders, on Tuesday night and impressed with a 22-point outing:
What was nice to see in those clips was Brown was mostly scoring in the ways one would expect him to make his bones in the league. Ideally you would like to see Brown shoot a little better than 3-10 from three, but the process was good. He also shot nearly 50% from the field, so a nice debut from Brown all around. If he can continue to show he is a step above D-League competition, the Lakers will probably start to find more minutes for Brown in the second half of their season.
