Former first pick of the 2001 NBA Draft, Kwame Brown embodies what it takes to be a first-round bust in this league. When it comes to his productivity as a player, what you see is what you get with Brown, who’s now an 11-year veteran in this league. Last season, the 6’11’’ center shared limited playing time as a member of the Golden State Warriors, averaging just 6.3 points and 6.4 boards in nine games.

After inking a small two-year deal with the Sixers for $6 million, most fans of Philadelphia are ready to see Brown warm up the bench for Philadelphia. It’s going to be hard for Brown to find playing time this year with post players such as Andrew Bynum, Spencer Hawes, Lavoy Allen and Arnett Moultrie all clogging up the paint for the Sixers. Regardless, Coach Doug Collins is once again reunited with Brown after a handful of years during those odd years in Washington with Michael Jordan. Philadelphia can only hope the big center can make the stops on defense whenever his number is called to take the hardwood.
