Brown: Monk accepts sixth man role to unite team


On December 5, Philippines time, in the quarterfinals of the mid-season championship, the Pelicans reversed the Kings 127-117. After the game, Kings coach Mike Brown was interviewed.

Talking about defender Malik Monk volunteering to accept the sixth man role, Brown said: “It is crucial. I think our team is close-knit and we have a lot of people who do their jobs to keep the team together. We need that because we don’t have two or three Hall of Fame players in their prime right now…For Malik to be willing to accept that sixth man role, it helps bring our team together.”

In this game, Monk played 33 minutes as a substitute, shooting 7 of 14 from the field, 5 of 9 three-pointers, and scored 21 points, 3 rebounds and 5 assists.
