Jabari Brown, a 6′ 4″ shooting guard out of the University of Missouri, was in Denver recently to conduct an individual pre-draft workout for the Nuggets.
Following his session, Brown had a chance to face the Denver media for the first time:
On working out in the famously thin air of the Mile High City:
“The altitude is something else!”
On what he thought he accomplished during his workout:
“I showed I can handle the ball and create my own shot. They know I can catch-and-shoot, but just showing I can do other things, and that I’m a competitor.”
On his weaknesses:
“I feel like I can improve playing the pick-and-roll. I can improve on the defensive end. But I feel like I’m putting a lot of effort into both of those.”
Brown mentioned that his day in Denver was his seventh pre-draft workout, so several teams have shown interest in the former Missouri Tiger and they are certainly putting him through his paces. It stands to be seen if Brown is a first-round talent, but if his packed dance card is any indication, he’s likely to hear his name called at some point during the 2014 NBA Draft.
Nuggets fans: Do you think Jabari Brown is a player who could contribute to the team? Or are there other players you’d rather see the Nuggets pick if they decide to bring in a shooting guard? Share your thoughts in the comments below or get at me on Twitter @TheSEShepherd.
