Brown Tosses His Name in the Hat: Michigan State junior forward Shannon Brown has left school to enter the NBA Draft to determine his value this year. He does not plan to hire an agent, so he can return to school if he does not like his projected value. Right now, scouts peg Brown as a late first-round selection at best. He averaged 17.2 points and 4.4 rebounds per game last season for the Spartans. [4/25/06]
