North Carolina will always be an NBA factory.
Will a UNC player go top 10 in next year's draft?
Here are the prospects those scouts will have their eyes on.
3. Joel James
ESPN rated James as the No. 1 player in the state of Florida and the 60th-best prospect in the 2012 recruiting class.
He isn’t a huge part of UNC’s game plan right now, but he’s only a freshman. Next year, expect the 6’10”, 260-pound forward to blow up as his playing time increases.
This season, he’s averaging 3.9 points and 4.3 boards in just 15.7 minutes of action. In 2014, though, it wouldn’t be shocking if James was a first-round draft pick.
2. Reggie Bullock
The 6’7” wing is currently averaging 12.2 points, 5.0 boards and 3.3 assists per game. He’s also shooting an incredible 46.9 percent from downtown.
With Bullock’s size, athleticism and shooting ability, he’ll find a home in the league.
1. James Michael McAdoo
The 6’9”, 223-pound forward is still only 19 years old, but he’s averaging 15.4 points and 8.3 rebounds for North Carolina this season. McAdoo has lived up to his billing as the sixth-best player in the 2011 recruiting class and it’d be a shocker if he sticks around for his junior year.
