More on Bruce Brown Free Agency
Bobby Marks: QO on Brown is $4,736,102. Brown has full bird rights and Brooklyn can bring him back despite being over the salary cap and deep into the luxury tax. However, signing Brown to a $10M contract for example would cost BKN an extra $36M toward the luxury tax.
Michael Scotto: Source: The Brooklyn Nets will tender a qualifying offer to Bruce Brown. As expected, Brown will become a restricted free agent. NBA executives projected free agent market values for Brown, Spencer Dinwiddie, Blake Griffin, and Jeff Green on @hoopshype.
According to rival NBA executives, Brown’s value could range anywhere from $4-7 million annually. There’s a belief he’s valued more highly in Brooklyn and may not fit well in a different role elsewhere due to his unique role with the Nets. “Brown will get less than the taxpayer mid-level exception,” an NBAexecutive told HoopsHype. “He’s a 6-foot-4 power forward for Brooklyn. Not many teams can use him like that.”
Michael Scotto: Bruce Brown on free agency: “I hope I’m here. I know my contract is up, but I hope I’m staying in Brooklyn. I love playing with these guys. They made me better this year.”
