Name: Greg Brown

Height/Weight: 6’8 ½ / 206

Wingspan/ standing reach: 7’0 ¼ / 8’11

Hand size: 9 ¾ 

Position: Forward

College: Texas

Tools: Athleticism, physical profile


  • Excellent athlete
  • Good recovery ability on defense
  • Above the rim finisher who can dunk over defenders
  • Long arms
  • Quick to set his feet on jump shots


  • Needs to improve jump shot form and consistency
  • Forces a lot of shots, especially on drives
  • Weak feel for the game
  • Putrid assist-to-turnover ratio
  • Defends with his hands too often
  • Very loose and uncoordinated handle


Greg Brown is an athletic forward with upside to be a two-way finisher. In order to hit his upside, Brown must improve his ball-handling skill, which will help him get to the rim more easily with his athletic traits. Once he gets towards and near the rim, Brown also must become a better decision maker. He often goes for the home run play offensively, looking to posterize defenders instead of making a simple pass out of the drive or finishing around defenses. Along with these areas of improvement, Greg Brown had an atrocious assist:turnover ratio of 1:6, which stemmed from lots of offensive fouls, losing the ball on drives, and unwillingness to pass and instead committing said offensive fouls and getting stripped of the ball. Brown’s jumper has promise, but needs to become more compact. His base is quick and he can shoot over defenses, but his elbow and overall release lack fluidity. Brown’s frame and elite athleticism make him a threat on-ball defensively, but he still uses his hands too often, which will get him in foul trouble early on. Brown remains the most exciting open-floor athlete in the draft, and he should be able to refine some of his other skills in the G-League early in his career before making an NBA roster and competing for rotation minutes.

Similar to: Tyrus Thomas, Darrell Arthur, Jan Vesely

Projected draft range: 30-60

Expected role: Raw, high upside scoring forward 

Unplayable if: jump shooting never develops, and he never improves the raw stages of his game, including poor shot selection and turnover issues.

Exceeds expectations if: Turnovers get cut, assists, rise, and jump shot outperforms statistical projections
