Shannon Brown: Assumes Starting SG Spot

Rotowire.com
Update: Brown is expected to take Jared Dudley's spot as the starting shooting guard when the Suns resume action Wednesday against the Trail Blazers, the Arizona Republic reports.

Recommendation: Coach Alvin Gentry promised a starting lineup change following the Suns' three-day layoff from game action, and while no official announcements have been made, all indications from practices are that Brown will replace Dudley at shooting guard. Brown is third on the team in scoring this season, but first on the team per 48 minutes. With an expected bump in the 22 minutes per game he usually receives, Brown should exceed his 13.4 points per game, though it could drag down his already unimpressive percentages from the field even further.
