Brown, who worked out for the Sixers during their final stages of pre-draft process, looked to be a perfect target for one of their second-round picks. He lacks a little in the tools department, but he was a great shooter and a rabid defender and would at the very least be an interesting guy to have on one of the new two-way contracts the league added.
I spoke with Brown after his pre-draft workout with the Sixers, and the younger brother of Shannon Brown shared the advice big bro gave him to prepare for the league.
“Go out there and have fun,” he said, “and when you step in between the lines, kill everybody.”
We’ll have more for you on details as they become available.
