Everyone assumed when the Timberwolves drafted former Duke point guard Tyus Jones that he would be the automatic backup to Ricky Rubio. Kyle Ratke, the web editor of Timberwolves.com, says not so fast.  In his article on Brown from yesterday he cites his high percentage shooting, his composure running the offense, and his success running the pick-and-roll as reasons he should at least be a #3 point guard on an NBA roster somewhere, if not better.  If the T-Wolves do pick up his option for the second year of his contract, and plays like he has this summer, Flip Saunders might be forced to play him more.

Ratke also spoke with Brown’s summer league coach Ryan Saunders about his play, and he had this to say:

“He’s playing the game, he’s taking what the defense gives him,” Summer League head coach Ryan Saunders said. “He’s shooting open shots, I don’t think one of his shots were bad shots, and usually when you’re just looking for your own shot, you’re gonna take a couple of bad shots, so I think he’s playing the game at a good pace, at a good rhythm.” (ARTICLE)
