College: Kansas State
Projected Draft Range: 2nd Round to Undrafted
Adequate scorer off the dribble
Excels at scoring on the move
Adequate defender that can get steals
Needs to improve his shooting
Can display spotty shot selection
Can be turnover prone
Can have lapses defensively
Not a true point guard, but is undersized to play the two
Barry Brown is an athletic combo guard that can score the basketball in a variety of ways. He can make clutch shots, as he was able to knock down a floater that proved to be the go-ahead basket to help his team defeat Kentucky in the Sweet 16.
On the other hand, he did not actually shoot the ball well overall in his team’s win against Kentucky, while he scored 13 points, he made just 4 of 15 field goals on that day. But Brown is a scorer, as he had tallied a combined 36 points in 2 games in wins over Creighton and UMBC, and his ability to get buckets could make him a potential second round pick in 2019.
