Nets trade cash to Timberwolves for guard Markel Brown

Friday June 27th, 2014

The Nets sent $1 million to the Timberwolves for the draft rights to guard Markel Brown, according to reports.

An explosive finisher renowned for his highlight dunks, Brown averaged 17.2 points and 5.3 rebounds for Oklahoma State last season. The 22-year-old also shot 37.5 percent from the three-point line.

Brown tied guard Jahii Carson for the highest maximum vertical jump (43.5) at the pre-draft combine in May.

The Nets traded away their first-round pick to Boston last summer as part of a package for Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett.
