Derrick Brown Working to Earn Spot
“You don’t appreciate things sometimes until you’ve seen something else,” said Brown, a former Charlotte Bobcat. “I love it here. From top to bottom, this organization is run the right way. I’d love to be a part of it. Love to.”
Three games into the preseason, Brown is doing his best to make that wish come true.
While fans have focused on more familiar names such as Eddy Curry and Josh Powell in the race for the Spurs’ final available slot, Brown has helped himself with a solid camp and exhibition season.
In three games, Brown, 25, has averaged seven points in 15.7 minutes per game.
The 6-foot-9 combo forward has played mostly power forward during his run with the Spurs. His athleticism and ability to guard small forwards has inflated his stock among Spurs decision-makers.
