Rookie point guard
Also, rookie forward
"I'm in that mode right now," Scott said. "Sometimes people just want you to do it a whole lot faster than you want to do it. And that's their prerogative. But they're not here every day with me."
Brown started at small forward Friday night in place of
But Brown is expected to get some playing time Tuesday night against Brooklyn whether Bryant plays or not.
"Now I want to see again, these last 20 or so games, let's see how much he's developed from that time where he was getting starts and he was playing 18, 19 minutes a game to now," Scott said about Brown. "Let's see if he's gotten better."
Black is the third-string center trying to carve out time behind starter Roy Hibbert and veteran reserve Brandon Bass.
Black, who played 12 minutes against Memphis, has played in the last three games.
"The last couple of games it was like, 'OK, let's start putting him back out there. Let's get a good look at him,'" Scott said. "I think it's possible I could have four of the young guys out there at the same time."
Scott said the two days Bryant had off from practice allows his 37-year-old star to get rejuvenated.
"I really suspect that he'll probably play [Tuesday] and Wednesday because I know it's his last time in Denver," Scott said. "I'll talk to him later on [Tuesday] and see how he's feeling and we'll just kind of go from there."
Even if Bryant plays against Brooklyn, the new offense Scott installed before Friday's loss to Memphis will continue. It is intended to increase ball movement, reduce the number of isolation plays and to get everyone involved.
"It's one set with a ton of options. That's all. It's just like the Princeton offense," Scott said.
