Additional Information

Brown, who could be the No. 1 pick, was one of four players the Hawks worked out. The others were Oak Hill (Va.) Academy center DeSagana Diop, Seton Hall center Samuel Dalembert and Villanova power forward Michael Bradley.

The versatile Brown was the most impressive of the four, relying on his speed, shooting touch and athleticism. Often compared to a young Kevin Garnett, Brown looked sure of himself playing inside and outside.

Good passer recognizes double teams well and makes quick adjustments ... Very good shot-blocker can cover a lot of area ....Can make the 17 foot jumper with some consistency and has even shown the ability to shot off the dribble ... Has a nice soft touch around the basket ..... Unlike most young players Brown understands what he can and can't do....

Weakness: Not very comfortable playing with his back to the basket has a tendency to rush himself .... Although Brown has a good body he could use more upper body strength ..... Post footwork still goes through periods were it can be choppy ... Falls in love with his jumper sometimes he settles for playing outside instead of mixing it up inside .... Low post offense is still developing although not bad but far from being consistent .... Has a habit of going for every shot that comes around him needs to learn how to be more disciplined on defense ...... Hasn't really played against a high level of competion in high school ....
