North Carolina State Wolfpack's Lorenzo Brown Taking Talents To NBA

North Carolina State Wolfpack’s Lorenzo Brown will be entering the 2013 NBA Draft.

After the season that North Carolina State had, you cannot blame Brown whatsoever. The Wolfpack were picked to win the ACC this season, which definitely did not happen. Not to mention, this team received a No. 8 seed in the 2013 NCAA Tournament. Most likely no one would have predicted this coming into the season.

Whether the case, Brown is one of the better point guards in the draft.

His 12.4 points per game may not be the most impressive number, but he did average a beastly 7.2 assists per game this season, which NBA scouts are probably raving over. For whatever reason, though, Brown was a less accurate shooter this season, which may have NBA teams a little worried.

A huge plus about the former Wolfpack is is 6’5” stature. Brown will easily have an advantage on both sides of the court because of his size alone.

Brown may not have scored the most points this season, but that was because NC State had so many options on the offensive side of the ball. However, the person that set up the offense and assisted his teammates left and right was Brown.

Brown’s stock likely would have not gotten any better if he returned to school, so it is a good decision for him to go pro.

Whichever team drafts up Brown, will be getting a pure point guard that will definitely be able to run the offense. However, his other offensive talents could use some work, but that should be no problem when Brown is making a career out of basketball.
