Michael Scotto predicts Brown will go No. 18 overall to the San Antonio Spurs.
From The Athletic:
Danny Green ($10 million) and Rudy Gay ($8.8 million) have player options. Brown would provide swingman insurance should the Spurs lose Green or Gay.
Brown, who is expected to work out for the Spurs according to a league source, is a versatile wing who can defend the one, two or three positions. His athleticism thrives in transition, but he needs to improve his 3-point shooting (.291) to become a more viable all-around option in the halfcourt game.
Brown averaged 11.3 points and 6.7 rebounds for the Ducks last season.
