Anthony Brown – Best Case: Courtney Lee, Worst Case: Landry Fields

Anthony Brown has all of the physical tools as the prototypical ‘3-and-D’ wing in today’s NBA. He doesn’t need to be a star, but he definitely could be a long-term starter in the league, very similar to Courtney Lee of the Memphis Grizzlies.

Brown is a little bigger than Lee, but their games are similar. Lee is a fluid athlete who excels on the defensive end, and must be accounted for as a 38 percent shooter from three-point range for his career. Brown can have a similar impact in the league if he focuses on what he needs to.

The good thing about Brown is that he comes in knowing his role, and he doesn’t try to do more than what he’s capable of. Most of Brown’s offense will likely come from catch-and-shoot opportunities, but he is smart enough to be able to take advantage of defenders who close out too hard, and can make the right pass when necessary.

Wherever Courtney Lee has been in his career, he has always found a role because of his great defense and ability to make shots. That is something that Brown can become, and relatively quickly.

On the other end of the spectrum, Brown’s fellow Stanford alum Landry Fields looked good out of the gate, but his lack of athleticism and consistent shooting ultimately did him in. If Brown can’t knock down his shots consistently, he could find himself on the end of the bench, just like Fields.
