Nets acquire Brown from Wolves in 2nd round

June 27, 2014

NEW YORK (AP) — The Brooklyn Nets made a late move into the NBA draft, acquiring the rights to No. 44 pick Markel Brown from Minnesota.

The Nets sent the Timberwolves cash considerations for the guard from Oklahoma State on Thursday night. Playing alongside Marcus Smart, who went with the No. 6 pick to Boston, Brown averaged 17.2 points last season, fifth in the Big 12.

Brooklyn, hosting the draft at Barclays Center, was going to sit out the draft until being able to make the trade. General manager Billy King says the Nets considered buying a first-round pick but that the cost was too high.
