Jabahri Brown signs with the Milwaukee Bucks

Former Lakers guard Jabahri Brown recently signed with the Milwaukee Bucks. The Bucks signed Jabahri Brown to a training camp contract. This comes as a surprise because it was rumored that he would be attending the Lakers’ camp.

During his brief tenure with the Lakers in 2015, Jabahri Brown averaged 11.9 points. Brown is no doubt a gifted scorer, but this is a Lakers team that is already full of offensively talented players.

Brown is an isolation player who offers little on the defensive end. Coach Walton has stressed that he wants a strong emphasis on ball movement and defense. These are two things that are not Jabahri’s strengths.

However, it is still tough to see Jabahri leave. He is only 23 years old, and at the end of the day the team that scores more points wins the game. Nonetheless, his departure from the organization has opened up a spot in training camp.

Not missing a beat, the Lakers signed Metta World Peace to a training camp contract. Metta is not the player he once was, but he thrived in his role last year as a player-coach and mentor for the younger players.

Peace’s veteran presence and defensive advice he can provide is invaluable. Losing a talented young player in Jabahri Brown is tough, but Metta World Peace may turn out to be a more valuable asset to the Lakers.
