3. Bruce Brown

Bruce Brown has found a new home in Indiana. After a breakout season and winning a championship with the Denver Nuggets last year, Brown will look to help get the Indiana Pacers into the postseason.

In his lone season with Denver, Brown started in 31 of the 80 games he played in. He averaged 28.5 minutes, dishing out 2.4 assists when on the floor.

Brown shot 48.3% from the field and 35.8% from behind the arc. He also shot 75.0% from the free-throw line, which is on par with his career average.

With his 6′-foot-9 wingspan, Brown could be a great 3-and-D player in the rotation to play with Haliburton. His athleticism, ability to score, and defense also provide aid to some of the woes of the Pacers last year.

In his debut for the Pacers, Brown went off for 24 points on 8-for-11 shooting, including 6–for-8 behind the arc. He and Buddy Hield were tied for the highest +/- on team with a +15.

Alongside Haliburton in the starting lineup, the two accounted for 44 points of the 143 scored (30.7% of the offense). They each played a team-high of 27 minutes, as well.

The combination of Haliburton and Brown proved to be too much for the Wizards in the first game this season. Hopefully, this is a sign of greater things to come.
