2021 Fantasy Outlook
While Brown saw a role reduction last season while going from the Pistons to the Nets, he was able to be a legitimate impact player on a Finals contender. The 6-foot-4, multi-tooled, multi-position player saw 22.3 minutes per game and averaged 8.8 points, 5.4 rebounds and 1.6 assists. He also saw 25.1 minutes in the second round of the Playoffs against the Bucks, when he averaged 8.7 points, 4.7 rebounds and 2.3 assists while shooting 52.8 percent from the field. Brown often played a big-man role on offense for Brooklyn, functioning as a pick-and-roll partner with the team's playmakers. He's also one of the best offensive rebounders in the NBA for his size, grabbing 2.8 per 36 minutes. Heading into 2021-22, Brown's role should remain steady. That means the 25-year-old probably won't be worth a spot in most redraft leagues, though fantasy managers in deep formats can always snatch him with a final spot for a high-floor player. He's also intriguing for keeper/dynasty formats, but he'll likely need a change of scenery for there to be any sort of payoff for hanging onto him. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio/PreCareer Summary

Bruce Brown Jr. was born in 1996 in Boston, MA. He is the son of Roberta and Bruce Brown Sr. and has 10 siblings. Brown had his first in-game dunk in the eighth grade. He split his high school time between Wakefield Memorial High School outside of Boston and Vermont Academy in Saxtons River, Vermont. While at Wakefield, Brown also played football as a wide receiver and strong safety. Brown also played high school baseball and JV soccer. Follow Brown on Instagram (@brucebrown11). When Brown began his career at Miami in 2016-17, coach Jim Larranaga thought he might be a solid reserve as a freshman. The 6-fooot-4 guard came off the bench in four of the first five games, then was installed as a starter for the rest of his career. In his 11th game, he put up a triple-double (11 points, 11 rebounds, 10 assists). The Boston native also scored 30 points in a win over North Carolina. He averaged 11.8 points, 5.6 rebounds and 3.2 assists, and Miami was invited to the NCAA Tournament. A foot injury limited Brown to 19 games as a sophomore, but he opened the season with a second triple-double. He played his last game in a Hurricane uniform on Jan. 27, 2018 and provided 11.4 points, 7.1 rebounds and 4.0 assists. After his abbreviated second season, Brown declared for the 2018 NBA Draft and was selected 42nd overall by Detroit.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
Brown saw a significant jump in both output and efficiency during his second season in the league with the Pistons, nearing nine points per game (8.9) to go along with 4.7 boards and 4.0 assists over 28.2 minutes. His biggest boost came from behind the three-point line, where he upped his percentage from 25.8 to 34.4, contributing to his increases in true shooting percentage and effective field-goal percentage. It remains to be seen just how large his role will be in 2020-21 on a new team, the Nets. Brooklyn has title hopes and a much better roster than Detroit, so Brown may not see the kind of usage he did in 2019-20. He was relevant in deeper fantasy leagues last season, which could still be the case in 2020-21. But chances are, he won't have much standard league relevance.
Brown emerged as a starter at shooting guard for the Pistons during the second half of the regular season, starting in 46 of the team's final 47 contests. His production, however, remained relatively unchanged with the move to the starting five. In fact, his points per game dropped from 4.6 points as a reserve to 4.2 as a starter, but this was likely due to him playing with more high-volume, ball-dominant scorers as a starter. Regardless, the second-round pick out of Miami showed he still has plenty to work on with his perimeter game, as he shot just 25.8 percent from behind the arc on just 1.3 attempts per game. This wasn't too surprising considering Brown shot just 31.6 percent from three in his two seasons at Miami, but it leaves Brown vulnerable heading into his second year. With the Pistons boasting plenty of backcourt options, including Luke Kennard, Langston Galloway and the newly-acquired Derrick Rose, Brown will have plenty of competition for minutes and has by no means secured a spot in the starting lineup for next year.
