2011 NBA Draft Results: Marshon Brooks Taken By Boston Celtics With No. 25 Pick, Could Be New Jersey Net Soon

With the No. 25 pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, the Boston Celtics took Providence guard Marshon Brooks. But Brooks may never put on Celtic green because, as SB Nation's Scott Schroeder broke, the New Jersey Nets have a trade in place for Brooks.

Either way, Brooks should provide an infusion of instant offense. He was a prolific scorer and slasher for the Friars, and shot great percentages at Providence despite being one of the nation's most-used players, shooting on more than 30 percent of the Friars' possessions.
