Lakers coach Byron Scott plans to meet with general manager Mitch Kupchak after tonight’s game, it seems clear (Jabari) Brown will have at least one vocal supporter.

“Right now, I’d like to keep him for another 10 days and see how it goes,” Scott said. “I think he’s improved from what we had in the summer time to this time right now.”

It also helps that Lakers forward Nick Young will stay sidelined at least for another week after a CT scan showed a small fracture in his swollen left knee. But Scott also likes Brown’s play after averaging seven points on 60 percent shooting 20 minutes off the bench through three games with the Lakers, a stark increase when he posted a combined five points, two rebounds and an assist in 22 minutes through four exhibition games.
