Apparently the Milwaukee Bucks have acquired New Jersey Nets PG Keyon Dooling and are n the verge of acquiring Sacramento’s Jon Brockman.
Dooling appears to be a downgrade from former Bucks backup PG Luke Ridnour. Dooling’s defense is okay, but his offensive production stinks. He doesn’t shoot very well, he doesn’t pass enough, and he doesn’t rebound at all. He’s fairly safe with the ball, and he’s an average 3 point shooter. His production has been a bit better the last three seasons mainly because he’s improved his shooting.
I like Brockman. He’s a rugged player and yet another highly productive rebounder. But I don’t get where he fits. Who’s headed out the door if he’s headed in? I guess we’ll find out.
As for his on the court numbers, he shows a lot of promise. Once he normalizes his foul rate, which was a typically (for a rookie big man) ridiculous 8.4 per 48, and provided he hangs onto or improves his other numbers, he could be quite a productive player off the bench.
It appears his on-the-ball defense may need some Skilization, though, as his Counterpart True Shooting % was too high last season at nearly 59%.
And although his turnovers appear low, for the number of possessions he used they’re a touch high. But that’s nitpicking.
Again, I like Brockman. I think he’s a more than serviceable player. And he shows the possibility of producing wins off the bench. But this must mark the end of Tiny Gallon’s opportunities. Although, Tiny didn’t really earn his keep in the Summer League. We’ll see what happens, I guess.
