What was your assessment of Dwayne Mitchell from coaching against him in the D-League?
Chucky Brown: I thought he was a very aggressive offensive player, likes to drive to the basket. He's a good defender and a tough kid, strong. I thought he picked up the triangle really well. He's a good athlete too. There are things that he would need to work on in terms of being a guard. I thought he played better in the forward spot in the triangle. It's hard to post him up because he's so strong. He works really hard and is a good tough player.
What are his biggest strengths and weaknesses as a player?
CB: His biggest strength offensively is that he can get to the basket and create contact and draw fouls. I think offensively his biggest weakness is probably in passing. I didn't think he was a great passer, but when you have guys that can get to the basket so well, they don't have to pass. Probably needs to work on his outside shooting ability. But his major strength is that he can get to the basket, really get to the basket and finish. He's big and strong and very athletic.
What strides did he specifically make in the Summer League?
CB:He just got better at knowing the offense and being eager to learn. It was good to see that. He really wanted to play in that system and you very rarely find guys (like that). A lot of these guys, these younger guys, they hear triangle and you can just tell they want to be in a more conventional setting, where they are going in isolation and pounding the ball. He wasn't like that. He came to me and asked questions about where he should be and is he doing this right. He really wanted to play in the triangle and I thought that was great to see.
What advice do you as a D-League coach give to guys who get a shot in the NBA?
CB:Just come and play hard and do what you do. Do what you do. Don't come to the NBA and try to do things that you're not accustomed to doing, do what you do. Find your niche. Pretty much, if you're coming from the D-League, you want to play defense and do all the little things. You don't want to come in thinking you'll be getting all the shots, they already have guys there that are going to doing that. You need to do all the dirty work. That would be my advice to a guy trying to make it into the NBA.
