In the second-round pick in the year 2018, Brown was successful in bagged a unique role on the Brooklyn Nets the last two seasons as a versatile defender who played like a big man on offense despite his 6-foot-4 frame.
Brown, who will turn 26 years old in this year’s August 15, was being used primarily as one of their screener and rim-roller for a talented Nets team that did not require his ballhandling skills. The role helped Brown shoot over 50% from the field the last two seasons.
