According to NBC Sports Northwest’s Jamie Hudson, Damian Lillard spoke highly of the UCLA product:

“He’s receptive of information. He takes criticism… Whatever you need him to do, he’ll do it. Whatever you say to him, he’ll listen.”

Brown is eligible to spend up to 45 days with the Blazers during the season under a two-way contract, and will spend the rest of the time with a to-be-determined G League team. He joins fellow rookie Jaylen Hoard as the other two-way contract slot allotted to Portland. The Blazers did not carry a two-way player last season.
The 20-year-old big man averaged 9.7 points, 8.3 rebounds and 1.9 blocks over 23.4 minutes a game during his lone season with the UCLA Bruins. He was a McDonald’s All-American out of New York’s Archbishop Molloy High School, the alma mater of former Blazers guard Kenny Anderson.
