brown draft

Tookie Brown went undrafted in the 2019 NBA Draft. He was named 2019 Sun Belt Player of the Year after averaging 17.3 points per game his senior year. 

With the end of the 2019 NBA Draft Thursday night, former Georgia Southern guard Tookie Brown went undrafted.

As the most decorated player in GS men’s basketball history, Brown finished with many honors including Sun Belt Player of the Year, four First-Team All-Sun Belt honors, multiple NABC All-District honors and becoming the first player in the Sun Belt to reach over 2,000 points and 500 assists.

After declaring for the draft at the end of the 2018 season, Brown eventually withdrew his name in order to return to Statesboro for another opportunity at the Sun Belt Championship.

On April 14, 2019, Brown declared for the NBA Draft via Twitter.

He participated in the Portsmouth Invitational alongside 63 other seniors who were invited from around the country. He put up 40 points the entire tournament and averaged about 13 points a game.

After the P.I.T., Brown was invited to and took part in pre-draft workouts with the Charlotte Hornets and the Philadelphia 76ers. 

Brown has multiple options as an unrestricted free agent. He can continue to work out for NBA teams in hopes for a contract, he can choose to play for a minor league or advance towards an international league such as the EuroLeague or the National Basketball League in Australia.
