Brown has a chance to be a real problem as a defender. He really disrupted the drills during the 3/3 ball screen session giving wing players fits trying to get around him. His offensive skill has rounded out well as Brandon mentioned below. He has the ability to shoot the ball well to the arc. But it is his ability to finish at the basket which is the strength of his game.

Brown showed growth in both his game and his physical frame. He’s gotten stronger and leaned up at the same time. Brown is both a shooter and a slasher as he showed in March. This time it was in an elite setting. He competed on both ends of the floor setting the example for younger guards like Troy Brown (NV-17).
