Scouting Report

OVERVIEW
Brown averaged 9.3 points and 6.2 rebounds in his one season at Texas, failing to live up to that McDonald's All-American reputation.
Brown shot just 42 percent from the field and that accuracy rate dipped to 33 percent from behind the 3-point line. He just never measured up as a shooter for the Longhorns.
Brown committed 60 turnovers (against just 10 assists) while averaging 20.7 minutes per game. Lots of sloppy ball-handling to go with poor decision-making.
A pick of Brown is a selection for the future. He will need to be brought along slowly and allowed to progress at small rates.
Brown blocked 26 shots and should be able to develop into a solid shot blocker. He's a decent defender who hustles and displays strong athleticism.
Brown, who turns 20 in September, badly needed another college season. Texas' hiring of intense Chris Beard as head coach surely would have helped toughen him up if he had remained in school.
ANALYSIS
Positives: Solid athlete who will match up well with NBA players once his game begins to develop. Enjoys rebounding and it shows as he has good instincts in terms of positioning. He can do the job defensively and will continue to improve with age.
Negatives: He was a suspect shooter as a freshman and poor from 3-point range. Doesn't have the type of ball-handling skills needed in the NBA. Inconsistent as he failed to score in double digits in 13 of his 26 college games.
