The Washington Wizards will select Troy Brown from Oregon with the 15th overall pick.

In his only season at Oregon, Brown averaged 11.3 points, 6.2 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.6 steals and 0.2 blocks per game. He shot 44.4 percent from the field, 29.1 percent from three and 74.3 percent from the free throw line.

The Wizards looked to bolster their bench more and just did by selecting Brown.

He is a great player in transition and a very talented passer. He picks offensive apart with his great defensive instincts. Brown also has great athleticism.

Brown is also a great rebounder in traffic and can finish difficult shots in traffic. He is a great dunker and could possibly be in the NBA Dunk Contest in the future. What I love about him is he is just a great overall defensive player and creates havoc on that end of the floor. The only knock is that he does not shoot the ball well from three, as he shot below 30 percent from last season. He will need to improve his three point shooting. He has great speed and athleticism and also has really good basketball IQ.

He is a great fit for what the Wizards are building, and fits Scott Brooks’ system overall \plus can learn a lot from John Wall and Bradley Beal.

Brown may not contribute right away for the Wizards, but he is the ideal pick to help bolster the bench that needs improving, and could possibly be a sixth man type down the road for the Wizards.
