NBA Comparison: Frank Williams

Strengths: Electric scorer that can put a lot of points on the board in a hurry ... Sturdy frame with good strength and a low center of gravity ... Not particularly explosive off the dribble but gets into the lane at a solid rate anyway ... Volume shooter from outside ... Attempted 6.4 three-pointers per game in his junior season, making just under 37% of them ... Has NBA range and the confidence to fire from anywhere inside 25 feet without any hesitation ... Good, comfortable ball-handling skills ... Plays well in pick-and-roll situations ... Really utilizes screens well, thanks in part to Rick Barnes implementing the Jerry Sloan flex offense at Texas ... Isn't a very athletic finisher, but knows how to shield the ball (using his body and the rim) and can finish with either hand ... Draws contact well (5.4 free-throws attempted per game) and has been a great free-throw shooter his entire career at school (87% over three years) ... Solid playmaker that is capable of finding open teammates after penetrating ... Improved every year at school and should only get better in time ...

Weaknesses: Only stands about 6'1", so he will have to play the point guard position at the next level ... A below-average athlete ... Doesn't possess a lead guard's mentality and can become turnover-prove when asked to play that role ... Shot-selection can be questionable at times, though playing as the Longhorn's only real scoring option gave him the green light in a lot of those situations ... Attitude has been questioned at times ... Fouled out of a game due to a technical foul earlier in the season, which displayed both immaturity and a lack of self-discipline ... Finished the year showing much better leadership skills, but will he be able to control his temper in the NBA? ...

Overall: Brown was a very talented scorer at the college level, but there are some questions about his potential to carry that talent to the next level, and if he isn't going to be a great scorer in the NBA, what else can he do that is going to make a team better? ... The improvements he's made at Texas are a positive sign however, and could inspire a team in the mid-late second round to take a chance on him ...
