With the 50th pick in the draft, the Phoenix Suns select Alec Brown

Alec Brown, a 7' 1" power forward from Wisconsin-Green Bay, is known for his ability as a shooter and a stretch four...a good fit for the Suns who depend on spacing as a part of their offense.

During the first workout in Phoenix, in which Brown was in attendance, Ryan McDonough stated that "Alec Brown's shooting really stands out at his size".

It's obviously the main reason he was selected, as he was able to average 15.6 points per game last season while shooting 44% from beyond the arc.

Brown's downside is that he is thin and not very strong at his size, which will be an issue against the much stronger fours in the NBA.  Still, he's a tall, long shooter who can consistently hit open shots from three.  That's enough to give him a chance to develop as a late second round pick with little risk.

PHOENIX — The Phoenix Suns selected center Alec Brown out of Green Bay with the 50th pick in the second round of the 2014 NBA Draft. The 7-foot-1 center averaged 15.6 points and 5.4 rebounds...

Let's get a fresh start on this sucker.

The Phoenix Suns have pick #50 coming up and have already drafted three guys. Check those articles out at the top of the site!


I don't know much about this guy, but here he is.

The draft-and-stash.

Our own guy pece knows a bit though:

Bogdan is Serbian and he played for Partizan in Adriatic league and in Euroleague from 2010th. He was good last year and made a breakthrough in Eurobasket last summer. This year is his best season in which he was also proclaimed as Euroleague Rising Star.

Bogdanovi? is on the level of Šari? if we analyses his current contribution. With 21 years he is already in top statistical positions in regional Adriatic league and Euroleague. In Adriatic league he is 8th in total index, 5th in points, and 9th in assists. In Euroleague he is 36th in index, 13th in points, and 24th in assists.
His measurements of 6'6'' put him on SG position although this year because of the injuries in his team, he had to play also on PG position. His performance was satisfactory, but combo position is probably not an option for NBA - at least for now.


Defense is not his weakness, he is considered a 2 way player. He is quick with 6'11'' wingspan, which he know how to use - he was 4th in Euroleague in steals (1,57 per game) and 8ht in fouls drawn (4 per game). He was also one of the best defensive players in Euroleague.
