Markel Brown is finally getting minutes for the Brooklyn Nets. And now that he’s off the bench, the rookie second-round pick is making sure he won’t go back there for an extended period anytime soon.
Levitation! The Oklahoma State product notched a wild 43.5-inch maximum vertical jump at last year’s pre-draft combine, and he clearly put it to use on this 360-degree slam. Is Brown still rising as he completes the flush? Looks that way to us.
Coming off a double-double on Monday in his first career start, the 6-4 guard had six points and four rebounds to help Brooklyn keep pace with the New Orleans Pelicans at halftime. The Nets trail by three.
