No. 1 Pick Anthony Brown Among Early Season Standouts

By Jon Fawkes | November 20, 2016

Even with the season less than two weeks young, there have been many impressive performances already. Here is a look at some of the early-season standouts, many of whom are tops on the Prospect Watch:

Anthony Brown

The former Laker and No. 1 pick in the 2016 D-League draft has gotten off to a hot start with 25+ points in each of his first three games with the Erie BayHawks, including a 38-point effort in his debut. Brown is living up to his No. 1 spot on the Prospect Watch so far.

Manny Harris

The 27-year old who last played nine games for the Lakers in the 2014 season is showing off his scoring ability through just two games with the Texas Legends, putting up 49 points in the first on 19-27 from the field and 22 in the second for a league-leading average of 35.5 points per game. No. 6 on the Prospect Watch, Harris also has three steals in each game and is averaging 6.5 rebounds to balance out his scoring output.

Ray McCallum

No. 2 on the Prospect Watch, McCallum spent time with the Spurs and Grizzlies last season and now tries to play his way back onto an NBA roster. His early-season play is trending in the right direction, with averages of 21 points per game, 9.5 assists (third in the league) and 5.5 rebounds for the Grand Rapids Drive.

Briante Weber

The versatile Weber logged minutes for both the Grizzlies and Heat last year, and is filling out the box score with averages of 17 points per game, 8.5 rebounds, seven assists and 3.5 steals. No. 4 on the Prospect Watch for the Skyforce, Weber will continue to flash his versatility on both ends of the court with the hopes of getting a call up to the NBA.
