MarShon Brooks talks about playing behind Joe Johnson and preparing to play with Rajon Rondo and Avery Bradley. Brooks should get more minutes with the Celtics, which should be great for him. He averaged 12.6 points per game and 2.3 assists per game in his rookie season at 29.4 minutes per game. That number dipped the next season when the Nets acquired Johnson and Brooks saw only 12.5 minutes per game.
Gaining Brooks is one of the bright spots of the trade, as Ainge reverses a bad move of passing on Brooks to take JaJuan Johnson in the draft two years ago. It's a mistake that Ainge copped to in today's press conference.
