Former Bobcat Derrick Brown to Work Out for Hawks
Agent Calvin Andrews told Comcast Sportsnet that free agent small forward Derrick Brown, who averaged 8.1 PPG and 3.6 RPG last season for Charlotte, will work out for the Hawks and Spurs. In contrast to guys like Tracy McGrady and Matt Barnes whom I've been pining after, Brown is young, has a lot of bounce and hasn't been limited by injuries. His 17.4 points per 48 minutes is only slightly behind Marvin Williams' 18.5 and beats McGrady's 15.7. He's also known as a decent defender although some classify him as an undersized power forward.
