On Monday, the Los Angeles Lakers faced off against the Philadelphia 76ers in the final game of a five-game road trip. Along with the game signaling the end of the last long road trip of the season, it also marked the final day of Jabari Brown’s second 10-day contract with the team.

Brown came into Monday’s game determined to prove his worth and possibly get retained by the Lakers for the rest of the season. Brown didn’t disappoint in potentially his last game in purple and gold impressing head coach Byron Scott. Coach Scott said he’ll be meeting with general manager Mitch Kupchak to determine what to do with Brown moving forward, according to Mike Trudell of Lakers.com:

In 34 minutes off the bench, Brown scored a career-high 22 points on 7-of-10 shooting from the floor. Brown also added three assists and a steal to the stat sheet as well as going almost perfect from beyond the arc hitting three of his four shots from deep.

With 10 games in the books for Brown, the rookie guard has shown his potential and may be able to stay with the team for at least the rest of the season. Brown averaged 9.4 points per game while shooting 50.0 percent from the floor and 45.8 percent from three-point range.

Much like fellow Missouri product Jordan Clarkson, Brown has shown to be an efficient offensive backcourt option for Coach Scott. The team may benefit from keeping Brown for the final nine games and extending another training camp invite this summer.
