Milwaukee Bucks Draft Scouting Report: Kendall Brown – Strengths
Kendall Brown is a great athlete who excels in the open floor and attacking the basket. He can jump high and throw down dunks, and he has great body control which makes him a terrific finisher. He ranked in the 83rd percentile as a transition scorer and in the 96th percentile as a finisher around the basket. His explosiveness should allow him to be able to score at the rim even against NBA athletes.
Brown is a smart player who knows how to get open without having the ball in his hands. He is great slashing, cutting, and finding avenues to throw down lobs. He shot 79 percent cutting to the basket, ranking in the 94th percentile. His ability to slash towards the basket and get open combined with his elite finishing makes him a solid offensive weapon. Even though he won’t have the ball in his hands in the half court a ton, he can still be effective and has the IQ to know how to get around the basket and get open.
Any player with Brown’s IQ, athleticism, and length has a lot of potential defensively. When locked in, he has shown plenty of defensive flashes. He can use his length and aggressiveness to swarm opposing players and really play nice on-ball defense. His 6’11” wingspan and fluidity as an athlete mean he can easily become a very versatile defender if he can find some more consistency.
