Bryce Brown invited to NBA workout

AUBURN, Ala. - The Atlanta Hawks have taken a liking to Auburn players testing the NBA waters.

Shooting guard Bryce Brown will work out in front of the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday, two days after point guard Jared Harper attended a workout in front of Hawks personnel. Brown has not hired an agent and is expected to return to Auburn next season.

The junior guard averaged 15.9 points per game leading the team in minutes (31.2 per game). He finished the season with 107 3-pointers, second most all-time in a single-season while shooting 38.2 percent from 3-point range. Brown was a first team All-SEC selection by the AP and the league's coaches named him to the All-SEC second team.

"I'm not sure there is a player in college basketball who has improved more over the last three years than Bryce Brown," Auburn coach Bruce Pearl said in a statement. "He is an elite shooter, an improved playmaker and a great defender. We're really excited for this opportunity for Bryce."

Brown has until May 30 to decide whether to stay in the NBA Draft or return to school.
