Brooks named to All-Rookie Second Team

By Mike Mazzeo

MarShon Brooks thought he should’ve been drafted much earlier than 25th overall.

He was right.

Brooks, who was acquired by the Nets in a draft night deal with the Celtics, was named to the NBA All-Rookie Second Team on Tuesday.

The Providence product ranked third among first-year pros in scoring, averaging 12.6 points per game.

Brooks, a native of Long Branch, N.J., is the 13th player in Nets franchise history to be named to the All-Rookie Team (sixth Second Team selection).

The 23-year-old guard played in just 56 games due to injury.

Houston’s Chandler Parsons, Sacramento’s Isaiah Thomas, Minnesota’s Derrick Williams and Cleveland’s Tristan Thompson round out the All-Rookie Second Team.
