North Carolina freshman center Tony Bradley declares for NBA Draft, but has not yet hired an agent.
After the North Carolina Tar Heels won the 2017 NCAA Tournament, freshman big man Tony Bradley told the Associated Press that he planned to declare for the NBA Draft to “test the waters”.
On Sunday night, he did just that. What is unknown is whether or not Bradley will hire an agent during the process, effectively ending his college eligibility.
Scout’s Evan Daniels first reported the news, stating that Bradley had already filed all of the necessary paperwork required to declare for the draft. He did, however, say that Bradley would not “initially” hire an agent, leaving open the possibility of a return to North Carolina.
Daniels also stated that according to league sources, Bradley is a likely first round pick if he decides to remain in the draft.
The 6-foot-10, 240-pound Florida native averaged 7.1 points and 5.1 rebounds in just under 15 minutes per game for the Tar Heels this season.
If Bradley does indeed decide to hire an agent and leave North Carolina after just one season, it will leave a sizable hole in the Tar Heels’ roster next season.
