North Carolina Tar Heels’ Reggie Bullock could have stuck around in college basketball for one more season, but he instead decided to enter the 2013 NBA Draft after a somewhat breakout season. So, where does his draft stock stand?
Many mock drafts have Bullock going at the end of the first round, which sounds just about right.
Bullock put up 13.9 points per game and 6.5 rebounds per game this past season, while shooting 48.3 percent from the field and 43.6 percent from behind the arc. Not to mention, he managed to shoot this well from deep range, while making 88 threes on the year.
Although the increase in playing time helped his production, he just got better as a player in general this season. Bullock stands at 6’7” and he can flat at shoot. For what it is worth, he also had 2.9 assists per game.
Who knows if his stock would have went up or down if he would have returned for his senior year, but he is pretty much a lock to get drafted regardless. His name should be called before the first round is over. If not, then a lucky NBA team would be more than happy to steal him in the early second round.
It will be interesting to see how he fares at the next level, but he proved to be a very good player this past season and any NBA team would be lucky to have him. While his Tar Heels will likely return back to form in the ACC in the upcoming season, Bullock will be on an NBA team making the big bucks.
