Moses Brown, LA Clippers

Moses Brown has been one of the LA Clippers’ newest projects. However, with the team not so keen on going the most traditional route lineup-wise, there are only a few chances for the young big man to crack Ty Lue’s deep rotation of proven veterans.

Still, it’s not difficult to see why the 23-year-old belongs in the NBA. Standing at 7’2, he’s a natural when it comes to corraling boards. This season, he has averaged 15.8 rebounds per 36 minutes, which is second in the entire association. Not a fan of hypotheticals? Then look at his numbers back when he was a full-time player for Oklahoma City two seasons ago when he tallied 8.9 boards in just 21.4 minutes per outing.

Realistically, Brown could be a good piece for the Indiana Pacers as the third center in the depth chart. Goga Bitadze still mans that spot, but between the two, Brown has the edge as a rebounder. If the Georgian big man’s value plummets further, running after the Clippers center will arm the team with another big body who can be more than just a project.
