About Troy Brown
Troy Brown is a versatile young wing with intriguing potential as a do-it-all, two-way player. A consensus top-15 prospect in the high school class of 2017, Brown was a member of the US team that won gold at the 2016 FIBA U17 World Championship alongside the likes of Wendell Carter and Collin Sexton. Averaging 11.3 points, 6.2 rebounds, and 3.2 assists per game as a freshman at Oregon, the 18-year-old had a solid all-around year doing a little bit of everything to help Dana Altman’s Ducks to an NIT berth.

- Measured 6’6.75 in shoes with a 6’10.25 wingspan and 208-pound frame at the 2018 NBA Draft Combine. Has nice size for wing and plenty of room to get stronger as his frame matures. Would benefit from some additional muscle as he is more fluid than explosive in terms of athleticism.
- Played a fairly unique role for a young wing playing on and off the ball. Did much of his scoring as a spot up shooter, but also made efficient contributions as a passer and ball handler in pick and roll and transition situations. Did a lot of little things, particularly on the defensive end meshing well on a team that was integrating a lot of new pieces.
- Competitiveness defensively stood out at times last season, especially when Oregon picked up full court. Was a factor in the passing lanes showing great timing and allowed just 0.514 points per Isolation possession[87th percentile] thanks to his size and energy. Plays with quite a bit of grit for such a young player. Makes an effort to chip in on the glass. Has the potential to be a plus defender as his game matures.
