Sterling Brown has recently been drawing some draft buzz as a second round prospect for the upcoming draft.  He is an athletic swingman that can score in a variety of ways, and he also is a good defensive player that can guard multiple positions.

This year, he was a solid role player on one of the best college basketball teams in the country, and with his skill set, he could profile into a 3 and D type of role in the NBA.
