In a recent Q&A with subscribers of The Athletic, Wizards G/F Troy Brown Jr. said he wants to work on his 3-point shooting, lateral quickness, and his ability to guard small point guards. (The Athletic)
The second-year combo G/F made significant strides in his sophomore campaign with the Wizards, averaging 9.7 points, 5.3 rebounds, 2.3 assists, and 1.2 steals in 25 minutes per game. Listed at 6’6”, Brown Jr. is naturally more of a shooting guard or small forward, but says that he wants to expand his defensive ability to enable him to keep up with defending the other team’s smaller point guard. Wizards point guard John Wall has been on the shelf since 2018, and maybe Brown Jr. sees his improvements in that aspect of his game as an opportunity to garner more minutes. Look for him to continue to improve his game year-over-year, and eventually become a player that can provide consistent fantasy value.
