Greg Brown is a very athletic, energetic combo forward that excels at making plays on both ends of the floor. He is a rangy defender that can make numerous plays on the ball, and he can rack up rebounds, steals, and blocks for his team. He also is a versatile scorer that can both knock down outside shots and also finish plays above the rim.
He will need to make more long-range jumpers consistently and improve his playmaking skills, and it is especially concerning that he rarely ever gets assists in games. He is also far too turnover prone on offense. Still, Brown is a talented player that could be a first round pick in 2021. On the other hand, he has not been nearly the dynamic offensive player as advertised, and his struggles to pass, handle the ball, and tendency to pick up quick fouls could mean that he could slip further than expected on draft day.
