Roy Williams said Friday that three North Carolina players, James Michael McAdoo, P.J. Hairston and Reggie Bullock, are weighing early entry into the NBA, and that they have not yet completed that process.
Williams, during a radio interview with WFNZ-610AMs Taylor Zarzour, said:
"I think it's still up in the air but we're much much closer to having all of them back than we were last year. They are all enjoying school, they are all still hungry to do more and there is nobody that is a guaranteed top-10 pick. We still have to continue going through the process, allowing those guys to make decisions, and in my mind some of them have already been made just about, but we're going to wait until all three are done so we can just have one announcement."
Bullock, a junior, averaged 13.9 points and shot 43.6 percent from 3-point range this season. McAdoo, a sophomore, averaged 14.4 points and a team-high 7.3 rebounds. Hairston, a sophomore, averaged 14.6 points and shot 39.6 percent from 3-point range.
Only McAdoo is considered a first-round pick in most mock drafts.
The NBA early-entry deadline is April 28.
