Okoro was never that. Brown was a high pedigree and high usage player with mediocre efficiency. Okoro is low usage player with mediocre efficiency. It's much harder for the latter to improve into what Brown has become. Also... I'm not sure making that bet (even with Brown type of prospect) repeatedly will give you good results in the long run. You better have a real good reason as to why you think Okoro can get to Brown type of player. I don't really see it with him from the little I've seen of him.
If you want an old-school comp for Isaac Okoro, it might be Mario Elie, who played for the Rockets and the Spurs. That said, I like Okoro's upside.
So... I've been looking into some of those guys last week or so... Can anybody tell me why is Okoro considered a better prospect than Patrick Williams?
He may not be. But Okoro is an explosive downhill athlete and maybe a more versatile defender than Williams. Jury's still out.
