Malcolm Brogdon Biography Details, Age, Net Worth, and Basketball Career

Malcolm Brogdon, in his fourth season in the NBA, is the starting point guard for the Indiana Pacers. He was drafted in the second round in the 2016 NBA Draft by the Milwaukee Bucks. Despite this relatively low draft position, he earned the 2017 Rookie of the Year award and became an important contributor to an increasingly successful Milwaukee Bucks team. He featured in both the point guard and shooting guard positions in his time in Milwaukee.

In 2019, Brogdon joined the Indiana Pacers as a free agent when the Bucks chose not to match Indiana’s contract offer. Since moving to Indianapolis, Brogdon has played almost exclusively in the point guard role. The greater offensive responsibility has showcased his abilities as a passer during a solid season for Indiana.

Malcolm Brogdon Basketball Career

High School Career (Greater Atlanta Christian High School)

In three years of varsity high school basketball at Greater Atlanta Christian High School, Brogdon averaged 20.8 points per game, peaking with 25.7 points per game in his senior season. He was named Mr. Basketball for the state of Georgia. 247Sports ranked him in the top 100 prospects in the class of 2011.

College Career (Virginia Cavaliers)

Brogdon elected to play NCAA basketball at the University of Virginia, turning down offers from Arkansas, Georgia, and Notre Dame. A foot injury caused him to sit out his second year. He came back from injury and was an important contributor for the next three years at Virginia.

In 2014-2015, Brogdon was selected on the second team All-American, first team-all ACC, and named the ACC Co-Defensive Player of the Year. In his senior season, he was again on the all-ACC team as well as first-team All-American. In his five years at Virginia, Brogdon obtained both his bachelor’s degree in history and a master’s degree in public policy. Brogdon’s #15 jersey was retired by the University of Virginia in 2017.

NBA Career

Brogdon was drafted with the 6th pick in the second round of the 2016 NBA Draft. He was an important contributor in his rookie season, starting 28 games and shooting over 40% from three and providing strong perimeter defense. He won the Rookie of the Year award, in part due to the number of games missed through injury by rival rookie Joel Embiid.

Brogdon only played 48 games in his second year due to injury but had strong performances including a career-high 32 points against the Phoenix Suns. In 2018-2019, Brogdon’s play off the bench was an important factor in the Bucks achieving the league’s best regular-season record. He was one of several role players that formed a strong complement to MVP Giannis Antentokoumpo, and the team started the playoffs strong but lost to Kawhi Leonard and the Toronto Raptors.

Following the 2018-2019 season, Brogdon left Milwaukee to join the Indiana Pacers via sign-and-trade. Brogdon embraced a larger ballhandling role and performed well, averaging 16.3 points per game and 7.1 assists per game (10th in the league) prior to the season’s suspension.
