Nets SG Markel Brown says team wants him to play the point


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/4/2015) Nets shooting guard Markel Brown is entering his second NBA season. The 23-year-old is spending the offseason preparing to play a new role for the Nets, per netsdaily.com.

Brown is preparing to contribute more by expanding to the point guard position.

"All the coaches know I'm a solid defender, but they want to see me go out there and score the ball," Brown said. "They want to see me do it on both ends. Even though they know I can score, I didn't try to do too much my rookie season. But going into next season, they want me to help contribute more for the team. My goal for the offseason is to get in the gym, score the ball and be able to handle the point guard spot."

Brown averaged 4.6 points and 2.3 rebounds in 47 games as a rookie last season.

Brown was the starter at shooting guard in the team's Game 1 loss, but played only the first 5:35 of the game before hitting the bench for the remainder of the contest. Bogdanovic scored five points in 32 minutes off the bench in Game 1.

Bogdanovic averaged 9.0 points and 2.7 rebounds in 78 games during the regular season. The Nets are 9 1/2-point underdogs in Atlanta Wednesday.

"Bogey is really the starter," Nets coach Lionel Hollins said. "And Markel, I play him to get some experience and some minutes. And usually, if he's playing better, he gets to play in the second half. If he's not, then I stick with the guy who's the starter."

"It's all a part of utilizing the group we have," Hollins said. "It's nothing personal. It doesn't have to do with anybody playing poorly. It's the way I see it. It's part of my job, and I have to be the final decision on it."
