Auburn junior guard Bryce Brown will go through the NBA Draft process, according to a release from Auburn. Brown will not hire an agent, leaving the door open for a return to the Tigers for his senior season.
Brown has until 5 p.m. on June 11 to withdraw his name from the draft.
“I want to thank God for everything he has done for me and the way he has led me,” Brown said in the release. “I had a dream to play in the NBA one day, and I want to pursue that dream. Testing the waters will be a great opportunity for me and my family to see where I’m at in the process.”
Brown was a First Team All-SEC selection by the Associated Press in 2017-2018, a season in which he averaged 15.9 points and hit a team-high 107 3-pointers. He reached 1,000 career points as a Tiger, becoming just the 18th Auburn player to do that before their senior season.
The Stone Mountain, Ga., native also held his defensive assignments to 37 percent from the floor and forced 100 turnovers this past season.
Brown is the latest Auburn player to announce his NBA Draft decision. Mustapha Heron has declared and will hire an agent, while Austin Wiley and Jared Harper will go through the process but will not hire an agent.
