I'm happy to have Lorenzo Brown around as a third point guard, though that still leaves the need for a real backup. For now, Zach LaVine will have that role, probably for the rest of this season.

Having Brown as an option for both the remainder of this year, and next year if the Wolves need him is a good thing. It also means he's a player who could be included in trades over the summer at little or no cost to the receiving team because he should be waivable throughout.

Glad to have LoBro around. Congratulations.
