Former Trail Blazers forward Greg Brown has signed a rest-of-season deal with the Ontario Clippers, L.A.’s G League affiliate, according to Albert De Roa of HoopsHype.
Brown was a highly touted prospect entering college, but his stock fell ahead of the 2021 draft, as he was selected 43rd overall after one season at Texas. The raw, athletic forward only made 16 appearances for a total of 93 minutes this season with Portland.
The Blazers waived Brown to accommodate new acquisitions as part of a four-team trade last month. He will receive his full $1.54MM salary for 2022/23.
In 64 games with Portland over the past two seasons, the 21-year-old holds career averages of 4.0 PPG and 2.4 RPG on .422/.294/.636 shooting in 11.5 MPG. In four regular season games (27.0 MPG) with Ontario, he has averaged 15.8 PPG, 5.0 RPG, 1.0 SPG and 2.0 BPG on .375/.280/.750 shooting.
