Troy Brown NBA Draft Scouting Report

6-6 - SG - Oregon

A run/jump athlete with big time athletic ability and intriguing upside.

Pros
A superior athlete with nice size and good length (6-9 wingspan) for the shooting guard position.

A high-flyer who can really play above the rim and bring the house down with impressive dunks.

As good quickness and agility and a lot of shake and bake moves on the perimeter. Can get his shot off against most defenders thanks to his quick first step and his ability to use the dribble to create space. A natural scorer who can score from three levels, Brown is developing a nice array of mid range moves including a fade-away jumper and a one-legged fall back J.

Has the size and ability to become a solid defender and hold his own against NBA wings.

Cons
Can play too wild and out of control and needs to do a better job with his shot selection and overall decision making on the court.

Brown is a long and wiry athlete but not very strong. He needs to put in a lot of work in the weight room to reach his potential as a defender and to help him finish through contract.

Comparisons
Flashes Jamal Crawford type ball handling and scoring ability.

Projection: possible first round pick in the 2018 or 2019 NBA Draft
