Bucks select Sterling Brown with second round pick

The Bucks selected shooting guard Sterling Brown from SMU with their pick in the second round of the NBA draft. The Bucks had the 46th pick.

According to NBA.com, Sterling Brown is nothing if not coachable. When he turned up at SMU as a freshman, then-coach Larry Brown and his assistant (and now head coach) Tim Jankovich told Brown he needed to become a better 3-point shooter or risk becoming neutralized as a scorer. So Brown went to work. He shot a solid 36 percent from 3 as a freshman, 44 percent as a sophomore, then exploded to 54 percent as a junior. That led the American Athletic Conference. In his final season, Brown once again led the league in 3-point percentage. “From the time he’s been here, he’s worked so hard on his shot,” Jankovich told the SMU Daily Campus. “He’s turned into not a good shooter, but a great shooter. He can shoot off the catch, off the dribble, or when he’s moving. He doesn’t have to be set.”
