4. Markel Brown, Oklahoma State (Guard)

With Avery Bradley emerging this year, Brown would be a great complement off the bench for when Bradley sits. Remember, at this spot in the draft it is very difficult to find superstar caliber talent and the C’s should be looking for NBA-ready impact players. Brown is certainly a player who has proven through his year-by-year improvements that he has what it takes to play a role on an NBA team in the short- and long-term. He has a lot of offensive tools and explosive athleticism, enough to keep up defensive pressure with Bradley on the court or when Bradley sits. Brown is also a competent ball-handler, which would allow him to play with Bradley who looks like a robot once he puts the ball on the floor.
