Final grade: Brown

Shannon Brown, backup guard:

He started the season as if he was going to be the impact player they hoped he could be off the bench. He made perimeter shots and forced teams to take not of him along the 3-point arc, but then he tailed off after Christmas and couldn’t seem to buy a basket at times. He also struggled to keep opposing guards in front of him at the defensive end, which made him even less useful on an inconsistent second unit. His scoring average of 8.7 points was a career best, something of a consolation prize.

Stats: 82 games, 8.7 points, 1.9 rebounds, 1.2 assists.

Grade: C.

Monday: Kobe Bryant.
