Boston Celtics Recall G MarShon Brooks

Written by 

MarShon Brooks Expected to Join Boston Celtics Friday in Golden State


BOSTON -- The Boston Celtics have issued a press release to the media to announce that swingman MarShon Brooks has been recalled from the Maine Red Claws.  He will join the team Friday as the Celtics take on the Golden State Warriors in Oakland.

Acquired via trade from the Brooklyn Nets in July, Brooks has yet to crack Brad Stevens' rotation.  For the season, Brooks was averaging an underwhelming 3.2 points per game and 1.6 rebounds per game in just an average of 6.8 minutes.

Due to the lack of playing time, the team decided that Brooks would be best served in the NBA's Developmental League.  He was assigned on New Year's Day 2014.

In five games for the Red Claws, Brooks averaged 27.4 points per game, 6 rebounds per game, and 4.4 assists per game, which included a 36 point outburst on January 5th.

Brooks is expected to be in uniform and available for Friday's tilt.
