Brown III has made four appearances for the @trailblazers this season, averaging 2.5 points in six minutes per game.
The Blazers are only one of two NBA teams not to have their own G-League team affiliate.
Brown III was selected out of Texas by the New Orleans Pelicans with the 43rd pick in 2021, before being traded to the Blazers on draft night.
Last season, Brown III appeared in 48 games and started in six, averaging 4.7 points on 31 percent three-point shooting, as well 2.8 rebounds, 0.7 assists and some stunning dunks. He’s averaged 2.5 points this season.
The extra run will no doubt help Brown III, 21, who has been languishing on the Blazers deep bench through the early part of the 2022-23 NBA season. While he’s away, somebody will need to take his place as Portland’s primary bench hype man.
