Elijah Brown intends to transfer from New Mexico and will become a graduate transfer, he announced on Twitter on Monday.

The 6-foot-4 Brown was one of the Mountain West’s most productive players last season as he put up 18.8 points, 5.2 rebounds and 3.1 assists per game last season for the Lobos.

The son of NBA assistant coach Mike Brown, Elijah started his college career at Butler before transferring to New Mexico after his freshman season.

With over 1,400 career points, Brown is going to be one of the most experienced graduate transfers available this offseason. While Brown is an accomplished scorer, he could stand to improve his shot selection (37 percent field goal last season).

Shot selection issues aside, Brown could be a valuable addition to a roster looking for a veteran guard who can put up points.
