Shannon Brown's plight

Cavs blog by Bob Finnan

Are the Cavaliers about to dump Shannon Brown to the curb?

He's been in the starting lineup for three games. His numbers aren't terrible and has averaged 16 points, 3.0 rebounds and 3.3 assists. He’s shooting 47 percent from the field in the three starts.

Every time he makes a good play, he follows it with a bad one. The Cavs obviously liked something about him when they drafted him No. 25 in the 2006 draft. Maybe they should have drafted UCLA point guard Jordan Farmar instead.

I still don't understand why they didn't pick up the third-year option on Brown's contract. To me, it just doesn't make sense. If they are trying to trade him, wouldn't it be easier to trade him if they had picked up his contract?

Maybe some day someone will explain it to me. All I see on the court is an error-prone player who can score points in bunches.

I agree that it makes no sense not to pick up the contract of Shannon Brown. He has speed and upside on a team that is lacking in both. Play him and let him grow. They need help and the veterans on the bench cant provide it. Good point Bob!
