Troy Brown Jr. is underrated by fans around the league, including Wizards fans. Yes, he’s inconsistent but he has made major improvements since first being drafted by the Wizards.
Brown is younger than current drop prospects like Obi Toppin and Saddiq Bey which really shows how young Brown is. He has a lot of potential and still has plenty of time to grow.
Troy shot 48.6 percent from the corner three and 36.2 percent from three if you exclude his end of quarter/game heaves. He’s a good rebounder for a wing and isn’t a liability on defense. Troy doesn’t commit silly fouls and can usually stay in front of his man without any issues.
The biggest weakness in Troy’s game is his consistency. Some nights, he is aggressive and looks to score and create shots while other nights, he hesitates to shoot the ball. Rookies and 2nd year players have a hard time staying consistent every night they step onto the court.
Consistency comes with experience and I’m confident Troy Brown Jr. can eventually become a consistent player in this league.
Troy showed the league what he’s capable of in December and January. He was balling and was confident in himself. He averaged 13.4 PPG, 7.0 RPG, and 1.1 SPG in 29.9 MPG in January. He has the potential and tools in his game to be a good wing player in this league.
Also, it should be noted that Brown has barely played with John Wall in his career. Everyone knows that John Wall makes his teammates better. With Wall returning next season, Troy will get much more open looks and more fastbreak opportunities which will continue his development.
