Bruce Brown is now a member of the Indiana Pacers, although he is still fresh off his Finals victory with the Denver Nuggets.
Before his time with the Nuggets, Brown was a member of both the Brooklyn Nets and Detroit Pistons.
And although his time with the Nets eventually became productive, it didn’t start in the best way.
Speaking to Tidal League, Brown talked about how he felt when he first joined the already-crowded Nets.
“When I first got there I was like, ‘Bro, I don’t even want to be here.’ I’m not about to play. I didn’t play all preseason. Not one game,” Brown said.
Brown mentioned all of the talent that was already playing for the Nets such as Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, Caris LeVert, Tauren Prince, Spencer Dinwiddie, and others.
With all of those stars on board, there wasn’t much room for Brown.
That led to a very quiet preseason.
But he eventually found his way into the rotation, especially when Irving was benched for a couple of weeks.
In his first season with the Nets, Brown started in 37 of 65 games.
He was able to secure 45 starts in his second season and became a well-known part of the lineup.
But that was when his time with the Nets came to an end.
Without a team, it wasn’t clear where Brown would play next.
Then Nuggets head coach Mike Malone picked up the phone and offered him a spot with Denver.
He only played one season for the Nuggets but it was a big one and resulted in Brown earning his first championship ring.
Now he is moving to the Pacers, where he won’t have to struggle with getting preseason minutes or starting games in the new season.NEXT: Bruce Brown Gets Honest On His Post-Championship Celebration With Nikola Jokic
