Nets’ Moses Brown’s 10-day contract has expired; should he get another?

·2 min read

Brooklyn Nets center Moses Brown‘s 10-day contract has expired. The Nets have the option to re-sign him to another 10-day deal. Should they? Brooklyn signed Brown to his first 10-day contract on Mar. 17 as they were looking for a backup option to play behind standout center Nic Claxton.

The Nets’ initial attempt to fill that role was Nerlens Noel. Noel signed his 10-day contract on Mar. 6 and played in three games. When Noel did not meet the needs of the Nets of being an effective backup center, instead of turning to second-year center Day’Ron Sharpe, they turned to Brown.

Brown played in only one of five games that he was with the team for and for the one game that he appeared in, a 119-106 loss to the Orlando Magic on Sunday, he played a little under four minutes of garbage time and picked one steal and one turnover. Based off that information, the Nets should not bring Brown back as they may have found their backup center: Sharpe.

Since Noel was signed to the roster, Sharpe has played in six games. In those games, he is averaging 9.8 points, 6.1 rebounds, and 1.8 blocks per game while shooting 57.5% from the field. Sharpe has looked impressive in the minutes that he has played since Brooklyn began this experiment and it looks like they got the effort out of him that they wanted to see. However, if you ask Nets head coach Jacque Vaughn, it seems that Brooklyn was doing it just to get a look at Noel and Brown. It seems that the Nets were just trying to light a fire under Sharpe.
