Riptide Sign Shooting Guard Aaron Brown

The Saint John Riptide are excited to announce the signing of Aaron Brown for the remainder of 2016-2017 NBL Canada season.

Brown, a six-foot-five shooting guard, played his college basketball at Saint Joseph’s University. The Darby, Pennsylvania native averaged 10.4 points and 1.3 assists per game in his senior year in 2015-16 season. He also recently played three games for the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Las Vegas Summer League this past summer.

“We are getting a strong defender that can get to the basket, make open threes, and has great post moves for only being 6′ 5″ because he is so strong” said coach Rob Spon. “I love his versatility of being able play shooting guard or small forward but can defend positions 1 thru 4”.

Aaron arrived in Saint John late Saturday evening and has been practicing with the team. He will make his Harbour Station debut on Wednesday, March 8 when the Riptide host the Moncton Miracles.
