Develop: Kobe Brown
When discussing the future of the LA Clippers, you would have to imagine that Kobe Brown at least has a small place in it. And a lot of anything beyond that would go into how he continues to develop over the next couple of seasons. But as a first-round pick for the Clippers, he’s a player that is going to be prioritized in terms of development, and deservedly so, for the foreseeable future.
In five NBA Summer League games for the Clippers, Brown proved that he could be an intriguing prospect for the team moving forward. Bown averaged 15 points and seven rebounds on 46 percent shooting from the field and 43 percent shooting from 3-point range. He’s an intriguing wing that could add some depth this season, even more so if he’s a bit more NBA-ready than some scouts originally believed.
For the Clippers, investing in the development of Brown is not a huge question mark. When he was drafted, it was clear that Brown was a prospect of interest for the Clippers. And with the uncertainty surrounding Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, the selection of Brown only makes that much more sense moving forward for LA.
