2012 NBA Draft Results: J'Covan Brown Goes Undrafted

After three years at Texas, J'Covan Brown declared for the 2012 NBA Draft despite not receiving much interest for most NBA teams. Now, after going undrafted, Brown will have an uphill climb to make an NBA roster and may end up playing overseas.

Brown is an excellent shooter and a crafty ball-handler at 6'2 200, but his lack of lateral quickness will make it difficult for him to contribute defensively at the next level.

If he's going to make a team, it will have to be as a shooting specialist off the bench, so his agent will need to be very careful in picking which summer-league team he plays for. For fringe guards like Brown, opportunity is as important as talent to avoid playing overseas.

That being said, there's no shame in being a high-level professional basketball player in Europe and Brown's skill level should allow him to make a comfortable living within the sport.
