Could Brownridge get drafted into the NBA?

I doubt that he will, but maybe he’s a late second round pick? He seems to do well off of screens, and he is a good catch-and-shoot guy. My guess is that he ends up at best an undrafted free agent who signs a pre-season pre-cut NBA contract, or ends up in a high-league overseas.

Unfortunately, no. And he will not be close on Thursday.

 

Best case scenario he makes a summer league team and I think that could be unlikely.

Agree, unfortunately he’s not even close to being on the radar. What’s crazy to me is that Jordan Mathews out of gonzaga is in the mid 60s out of all the prospects. I would have always thought brownridge would be higher than him.

Short answer….little to no chance. He may or may not get signed to a summer league contract. He’d have to play out of his mind in summer league to get invited to training camp and make a regular season roster or even NBDL for that matter. Most probably didn’t hear but he played poorly at the Portsmouth Invitational a few months ago which is made of graduating seniors, generally guys who aren’t expected to be drafted, at best a few fringe NBA guys come out of it.
He’s undersized and below par athletically for an NBA 2 (shooting guard) and isn’t a good enough playmaker, ball handler or athlete to play the point in the NBA.
Re: comparisons to Mathews…Mathews is bigger, more athletic, a better defender and rebounder and a comparable 3pt shooter and yet is still not expected to be drafted. Brownridge might have a slight edge over Mathews in his creatitivity as a scorer and midrange pull-up game either off screens or the dribble but that’s about it.
That said, he could have a solid career overseas. Hope he does.
