BOS Shooting Guard/Small Forward: 6’7, 225 lbs; 2nd year, Cal

NBA Role: (raw) explosive wing 

The most explosive wing player from the 2016 Draft class, Jaylen Brown’s a high-riser who treats defense as a main priority; future two-way star: Brown has NBA size at 6’7, 225*, goes hard in the paint, tries to dunk everything; forever in attack mode – won’t stop till he draws a trillion fouls and puts buckets on you (has a wide array of moves to lean on off the dribble, can find minuscule seams or burst in for overpowering shots); long-range shooting comes and goes – shaky mechanics, working to include additional shots OTD; passes the eye test as a 20-year old wing but will experience growing pains – there’s no question Brown has talent, but some nights the production just won’t be there**Boston’s undisputed X-Factor

*is JB the second coming of DeMar DeRozan (TOR)?

**and it’s not for lack effort or talent – Brown’s consistency will improve as he continues to earn more game experience
