For the first time under Dana Altman, the Ducks saw a true freshman come and go after just one season. On Tuesday afternoon, Troy Brown Jr. announced his intention to declare for the 2018 NBA Draft. Brown made the announcement on his Twitter page.
During his lone season with the Ducks, Brown averaged 11.3 points, 6.2 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game during 31.2 minutes of playing time per game. He shot .444 from the field and .743 from the free throw line.
Coming out of high school, Brown was considered one of the top recruits in the nation, ranked as the No. 11 recruit in the nation by Scout. He committed to Oregon on November 7, 2016, the year that the Ducks would march all the way to the Final Four.
In their latest mock draft, Sports Illustrated has Brown going No. 16 overall to the Phoenix Suns. NBADraft.net has Brown going No. 21 overall to the San Antonio Spurs.
