NBA Comparison: Jason Richardson

Strengths: Supremely talented wing with physicality and a nose for the basket ... Brown has been blessed with a man's body at a very young age ... He checked in at 6'6.5" in shoes and 222 lbs at the 2015 Nike Hoop Summit ... He often outmuscled his opponents whether attacking the basket or bodying up defenders in the post ... Not just strong, but also a high-level athlete ... Quick-twitch muscles are superb as he can create space with just a simple jab step ... Has a combination of strength and speed that is rarely seen in players his age ... Uses these attributes to finish plays around the rim at a high rate ... Welcomes and absorbs contact whenever he drives to the basket ... Is very good at splitting defenders whether in the air or off the dribble ... Often finishes with ferocious slams and tenacity at the hoop ... Doesn't force his way through the lane ... Surveys the defense and will often take what is given to him ... Likes to get a feel for where his defender is and then spin off to create space for his jumper ... While high school defense and college defense are two different things he's shown all the tools to be a great defender at any level ... His frame and athleticism allows him to guard between three and four positions ... Can stay in front of quicker players and go blow for blow with bigger players down low ... Transition is where he has the ability to wreak the most havoc ... Capable of both starting and finishing the fast break ...

Weaknesses: While he's found it easy to score most of his life, he will need to develop a more consistent jump shot to become an elite scorer ... His mechanics and form can change depending on where he is shooting the ball from ... Needs to develop a consistent shooting form ... At times tried to do too much, which led to unforced or unnecessary turnovers ... Must become a better player off the dribble ... Doesn't have many moves with the ball just attacks the rim for now ... Isn't as strong with his left hand ... Improve on going left and finishing on the left hand side ... Can't become overdependent on his athletic and physical tools ... At times can be too laid back on the floor, should look to develop a higher level of consistent energy ... Consistency and focus will be the key for him at Cal to prove that he's worth the hype that he received as a high schooler ...

Overall: Brown is a prospect that has all the physical gifts you could ask for. His combination of toughness, smarts and athleticism would allow him to hold his own in an NBA game right now. However, he must continue to fully develop his basketball skills if he wants to stand out and become one of the best players in the league. Has flashed the potential of become a versatile all-around player, hopefully one day he can fulfill it.
