AUSTIN (KXAN) — Former Texas men’s basketball coach Shaka Smart referred to Greg Brown as a “one and done” as soon as the Vandegrift High School product committed to Texas. He was right.
On Thursday, Brown posted on his Instagram account that he is declaring for the NBA Draft and he’ll sign with BDA Sports for representation.
In the post, Brown said that he has decided to “chase his dreams.”
The 6 foot, 8 inch forward has been projected as a first-round draft pick since he arrived at Texas. Brown averaged 9.3 points and 6.2 rebounds per game while hitting 30 of 91 three-pointers. Brown scored a career-high 24 points and 14 rebounds in UT’s win over Oklahoma State in its Big 12 opener.
Brown’s production dropped off the second half of the season. His scoring average went from 12 points per game in late January down to 9.3 to end the season. Brown played just 25 total minutes in UT’s two Big 12 Tournament games and a first-round loss to Abilene Christian, scoring just five points.
Brown joins teammate Kai Jones in the draft, and Jones is projected as a lottery pick after his breakthrough sophomore season.
The NBA Draft will be held on July 29.
