After going undrafted in the 2019 NBA draft, it did not take long for Bryce Brown to hear from a team. Now that guy Bryce Brown will be shooting that thing for Sactown, at least for the summer.
Brown is headed to Sacramento and will join the Kings this summer as a member of their Summer League team. He attended the Kings pre-draft workout on June 11th and now just ten days later is joining the Kings as a member of their summer league team.
A three-star recruit coming out of high school, Brown was not only instrumental in Auburn's 2018-19 final four run where he was selected to the All-Midwest Regional team but also as a vital piece in revitalizing Auburn basketball.
In his four years at Auburn, Brown became known as a 3-point specialist setting the school record for most 3's in a career with 382 makes. Those 382 3's are good for second all-time in SEC history and 28th all-time in the NCAA.
Brown broke the Auburn and SEC single-season 3-point record in his senior season with 141 baskets from beyond the arc.
The crafty offensive star during his four years on The Plains finished his career averaging 12.8 points, 2.0 assists on 39.5 percent from the field.
Brown was named to the All-SEC First Team by the AP and All-SEC Second Team by the SEC coaches in his junior year and was named All-SEC Second Team by the coaches in his senior season.
He was named the SEC Tournament MVP after helping lead Auburn to victory in the 2018-19 SEC Tournament. During Auburn's four SEC tournament games, Brown averaged 16.5 points, 2 assists and 1.3 rebounds all on 42 percent shooting from three.
The former Auburn guard if he receives an offer from the Kings past Summer League, should fit in well with the fast-paced, up-tempo offensive style of the Kings.
On average last season, the Kings scored 114.2 points per game, which ranks them as the ninth best offense in the NBA. Auburn put up an average of 79.7 points per game, ranking them as the 34th best offense in all of Division 1 NCAA basketball.
The NBA Summer League kicks off officially on July 5-15 in Las Vegas, but for the Kings, it begins on July 1-3. Sacramento is hosting a four-team tournament before the official start of Summer League.
The Kings, Warriors, Heat and Lakers will take part in the California Classic from July 1-3 and will compete with rosters of 2019 drafted rookies, sophomore NBA players and athletes competing for roster spots in the G-League or NBA.
