Per Conor O’Neill, Wake Forest guard Chaundee Brown is leaving the team one way or another. Brown plans to enter the NBA Draft process, but will enter the transfer portal and play his final year of eligibility at another school if he does not stay in the draft.
Chaundee Brown is entering the NBA draft process and if he returns to college, he plans to enter the transfer portal, per source: https://t.co/QCYkipuwrS— Conor O'Neill (@ConorONeillWSJ) April 15, 2020
In his three year career with the Deacs, Brown averaged 10.4 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 1.2 assists per game. He had a massive role in Wake’s two Top 25 wins this season, going for 26 points on 11-16 shooting in a win over 23rd ranked Xavier and 24 points on 8-12 shooting in a win over 7th ranked Duke. Despite struggling with a calf injury that kept him out of seven conference games, Brown still managed to average 10.5 points and 6.5 rebounds per game in the ACC, which was the 3rd and 2nd best on the team respectively.
This is a another blow to the Wake Forest basketball program. Chaundee Brown was poised to become one of the most experienced players in the ACC and a senior leader on a team that is desperate for a winning season. Brown is the third player to transfer in the last month—along with Sharone Wright Jr. and Michael Wynn—leaving Jahcobi Neath as the only returning guard on the team.
As always, we want to wish Chaundee the best in his future basketball endeavors. Good luck Chaundee!
Update: Brown has now made it official via Twitter.
