With the No. 25 pick of the 2013 NBA draft, the Los Angeles Clippers selected Reggie Bullock from the University of North Carolina.

Here's everything you need to know about Bullock: 

Physical Tools

Here's how Bleacher Report NBA Draft Lead Writer Jonathan Wasserman breaks down Bullock's physical attributes:

At 6'7'' with long arms, he has your typical size for an NBA wing. He's a good athlete, but not one that will knock your socks off. He's mobile enough to slash between the defense and finish on the move, though he lacks the explosiveness to make routine plays above the rim.

Bullock weighed in at a hair under 200 pounds, though he's got the frame capable of adding more muscle. He'll need to do so for defensive purposes and finishing at the rim.

Overall, his physical tools shouldn't prevent him from excelling in his projected role as a stretch forward.


Getting to Know Reggie Bullock  

Bullock garnered a bunch of high-level hoops experience battling in the ACC for three years, and he brings defensive intangibles to the NBA. However, he needs to develop a more intense approach and be more aggressive to survive against NBA competitors.


NBA Player Comparison

He possesses superb defensive talent, a little shooting and some athleticism, so Bullock could end up being much like Dahntay Jones.

If he doesn't maximize his stoppage skills and knock down triples, he could end up being a less physical Keith Bogans.


Pro Predictions

It might take a little while for Bullock to crack the rotation early in his career, as he must demonstrate the ability to score consistently from NBA three-point range and finish tough shots in transition.

If he can step up offensively and also make the most of his size, length and defensive potential, he could find a regular role as a swingman stopper.

No one is expecting substantial scoring production from him, so he just needs to make the right plays when the ball is in his hands and convert high-percentage looks when foes overplay his teammates.

On the other end of the floor, he could be one of the top 10 small forward defenders in the league.
