Before last year, the 7-2 Brown likely would’ve been another top recruit who bounced around the G League and back end of NBA benches for a few years before going overseas. However, the Thunder gave him a chance to start, and he responded with a solid 8.6 points and 8.9 rebounds per game this season.
Brown has been passed around a bit this offseason, as he was traded to Boston along with Al Horford before ending up in Dallas due to the Josh Richardson deal. While Khem Birch and Achiuwa might be in town, his numbers last year could make it tough for Toronto to refuse to ask for him.
Moses Brown could blossom with the Toronto Raptors.
Even with some solid box score numbers, he is extremely raw. That being said, you can’t teach height or the springiness that he has despite his size, and he could be a genuinely impressive starter-level talent if he continues to add new facets to his game as a member of the Raptors.
While he might not fit into the smaller, positionless mold that the Raptors treasure, Ujiri is not going to be one who turns down someone as tall as he is with the athletic ability of someone six inches shorter. Ujiri shouldn’t get off the phone in Dragic talks until Brown is sent to Toronto.
