Sterling Brown, a Proviso East basketball standout who distinguished himself at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas, was selected as the 46th pick in the NBA draft on June 22.

Brown — whose older brother, Proviso East and Michigan State alum Shannon Brown was picked 25th in the 2006 NBA draft — was picked in the second round by the Philadelphia 76ers but immediately traded to the Milwaukee Bucks.

In a June 20 essay he penned for CBS Local Sports, Sterling Brown recalled his family’s rich basketball roots and battling with his older brother:

“We have a basketball family,” Brown wrote. “My father played in college and of course Shannon played in the NBA, so just being around the game all the time growing up and watching those two really got me into playing basketball. My battles with my older brother growing up were good battles to me because he never took it easy on me. I still haven’t beaten him to this day. But, I always gave it my all and I got better with every game that I played against him. It’s still a challenge for me and I look forward to getting that first win under my belt.”
