Former Houston Rockets guard Bobby Brown joins us on the latest episode of the RocketsWire Extra podcast to discuss his time playing alongside top 2021 NBA draft prospects Jalen Green and Jonathan Kuminga.

Brown, Green, and Kuminga were each regular starters in the 2021 G League “bubble” for the G League Ignite team, with Brown and Green often lining up together in the starting backcourt. With Houston defying the odds to land the No. 2 overall pick in Tuesday’s draft lottery, Green is suddenly among the top candidates to join the Rockets this offseason.

Topics discussed on Friday’s new episode include:

  • The value of the NBA’s new “professional pathway” program to prospects like Green and Kuminga

  • What Green’s demeanor is like, on and off the court

  • How Green improved during his season in the G League

  • Potential NBA comparisons for both Green and Kuminga

  • Why Brown wants Green to be Houston’s choice at No. 2 overall

  • What comes next for Brown, now that more international basketball opportunities could open up next season
