Marshon Brooks was the Player Prized by the Celtics
MarShon Brooks appears at home at the Celtics' Waltham training facility. After two turbulent seasons with the Brooklyn Nets that saw him play, not play, and then thrust back into playing time. After being the prized player going to the Celtics in the Kevin Garnett/Paul Pierce trade, Brooks is trying to gain a comfort level in the NBA for the first time.

Bleacher Report, perhaps? Some Celtics fan site?
None other than Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe.
Far be it from me to rain on anyone's parade, but as The Army recently noted, the former New Jersey player most likely to contribute to this year's Celtics' win total is named Kris Humphries, having proven twice in two recent seasons to be capable of dropping 10 and 10 on a regular basis. This being a contract season for Humphries makes his likely contributions even more bankable.
As for Marshon Brooks, I'm gonna say he will remind us most of, well, someone already on the Celtics roster -- Jordan Crawford.
