Alec Brown

Anybody have an opinion on this guy? Measured over 7'1 in shoes (7'1.5 wingspan, 9'1 standing reach), hits 3s and looks to have decent mobility. Can he play PF, because looks thin for a center

1. Using a team's play in games their star is injured should send you to SSS jail
2. ORTG/DRTG ranks are connected in back and forth play and energy expenditure
3. RAPM/RPM is proven measuring regular season value, but not postseason

I haven't seen him play much, but every time something pops up about him he sounds like a legit shooter. I'm pretty sure he was the top shooting big man at the combine IIRC, and he's got a blurb from last summer's Adidas camp where they said the same thing:

He was probably the top overall shooter among the college guys, guards included, knocking down numerous outside jumpers. He also showed a willingness to play physically under the basket.

He should have a career in the league as a face-up, pick-and-pop stretch forward. Going against the aforementioned group of bigs and consistently outscoring them in front of NBA scouts certainly did nothing to hurt his stock. He displayed good agility at his height and a strong understanding of his offensive strengths. He can run the floor , which makes him a very dangerous trailer hitting top-of-the-key jumpers or the occasional dunk on the break.

His obvious weakness is his lack of brute strength. He had difficulty creating shots for himself in the post and was not much of an intimidating force on the defensive end. He will need to improve his strength and defensive ability to become a rotational player at the next level.

He's like Isaiah Austin but can actually shoot at a decent clip. He's definitely soft though and likes to hang around the perimeter, definitely wouldn't expect any contribution on the glass or defensively.
