Former Washington standout Terrell Brown Jr. taken in first round of NBA G League Draft
Former all-conference Washington guard Terrell Brown Jr. was taken with the seventh overall pick of the 2022 NBA G League Draft by the College Park Skyhawks on Saturday.
The Skyhawks are the G League affiliate of the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks. College Park took Brown in the first round of a three-round draft. The Skyhawks also had the No. 4 pick in the first round, and used that selection on a guard as well.

Brown is a walking bucket.
He was a two-time all-WAC player in two seasons at Seattle, averaging 17 points and five assists on 43% shooting as the primary option. He spent the 2020-21 season in a reserve role for Arizona, where he averaged 7.3 points a game. He took a grad transfer to Washington last season to spend his final year of eligibility in his hometown of Seattle and was unstoppable.
The 6-foot-3 guard averaged a career-high 21.7 points a game. He topped 20 points in 21 of the Huskies’ 32 games — including each of his final six games — and reached 30 points four times. He led the Pac-12 in points per game, minutes per game, usage rate, and free throws attempted. And despite all that responsibility on his shoulders, he still finished second in PER (25.9) behind only Arizona’s Christian Koloko and seventh in eFG percentage (46.2%).
For the first time in G League history, there will be 30 teams competing in a full 32-game schedule. Not all 30 NBA teams have a G League affiliate (Phoenix and Portland do not) but the G League Ignite and Mexico City Capitanes are joining the G League after previously only playing in exhibitions.
The season tips off on Nov. 4.
