Report: Nets pick up 2013-2014 option on MarShon Brooks
The Brooklyn Nets announced that they will use the 2013-2014 option on MarShon Brooks, per the New York Times' NBA and Nets reporter Howard Beck:
The decision comes on the heels of speculation that the Nets' promising young sixth man might miss most of the preseason from tendinitis in his right foot.
His role with the team also seemed to be diminishing, after the Nets added wings Gerald Wallace, Joe Johnson and Josh Childress; Brooks is no longer a starter for the Nets. However, Brooks maintains that his goal for the season is Sixth Man of the Year.
