Shannon being shopped?
Could Shannon Brown's days be numbered in Cleveland? That seems to be the prevailing notion. The Cavs will soon need a roster spot, and either Brown or Demetris Nichols will have to go.
Brown's career has been disappointing. He came in with such big promise, and will probably leave with little fanfare. If another team, preferably one on the West Coast, needs a scorer, perhaps they'll call. There's no question he can put the ball in the basket.
He's athletic and very strong. But he's not one to create for others. His ballhandling is still a bit suspect.
Have the Cavs done everything in their power to develop Brown's game? That's debatable. He reminds me a bit of former Cavs guard DaJuan Wagner, who is now out of the NBA. He was very athletic and could score, as well, but lacked the necessary ingredients to be a top-notch player in this league. Many hope the same fate is not awaiting Brown.
The Cavs would love to get a first-round pick for Brown, but that might be wishful thinking. A second-rounder might be the best they'll be able to receive. Stay tuned.
