Brad Stevens has expressed to Brooks to remain patient, but with Rondo working toward a return in a few weeks, Boston's backcourt is about to get even more crowded. Brooks will be able to get increased game action, and maybe he'll gain some confidence back in his game.
"The D-League with the right attitude can [help players develop]," said Stevens. "Because, again, you talk to our guys in Maine about [Mack] and they loved him. When he went there, he didn’t act like that was not his level. He went there and tried to get better and improve. That’s what the great benefit of that is, and you see it being utilized more and more with a lot of guys that are first-round picks or second-round picks and I think that will just continue and, if guys go in with the right mindset and the right attitude about it, it can really jump-start their careers, and it has for Shelvin."
