The Dallas Mavericks traded Josh Richardson to Celtics for Moses Brown and a trade exception in the 2021 offseason. J-Rich just did not fit, and the Mavs added a young talented center with immense potential in the deal.
Brown has struggled to get minutes this season. He played in just 26 of the team’s first 55 games and is averaging just 6.5 minutes per contest on the season. The 22-year-old has shown flashes but is still raw and behind a veteran group of centers.
The Mavericks want to get him some playing time, so they assigned him to the Texas Legends on Feb. 9. This is the second time this season he will play in the G League, and here is a look at what to expect.
Dallas Mavericks assign Moses Brown to the Texas Legends
Back in November, the Mavs gave Brown and Josh Green a chance to play in Frisco, and the organization made the trip to the game. They watched the 7’2 center produce 23 points, 16 rebounds, and three blocks in the Legends blowout win.
Brown should dominate again as the Legends face Agua Caliente Clippers on Wednesday evening. It will be an opportunity for him to play extended minutes. Before playing the final 3:30 in the Mavs blowout win over the Pistons on Feb. 8, Brown had not seen game action since Jan. 12.
The Texas Legends are 6-6 after 12 games and need depth. Expect Moses Brown to start at center on Wednesday night and produce another monster line. His energy, rebounding, and rim rolling will be difficult to stop.
Fans should tune in to the Legends game against the Clippers on Feb. 9, and check back to The Smoking Cuban for plenty more on Moses Brown’s performance in Frisco. The Dallas Mavericks are back in action against the LA Clippers on Thursday night, and supporters will not want to miss that game either, so stay tuned.
