An early look at next year's NBA draft
By Robbi Pickeral
ESPN.com’s Chad Ford wrote last week that the 2013 NBA draft list might be the weakest in more than a decade (Insider Access required), thanks to a lack of top returning underclassmen and “a marginal freshman class.”
UNC redshirt junior Leslie McDonald, who missed last season because of a torn ACL, currently ranks 148 on Ford’s list. And it’s interesting to note that McAdoo is currently the only ACC player projected in the top 20. NC State’s C.J. Leslie comes in at No. 21, followed by Duke’s Mason Plumlee at No. 24. Kentucky freshman Nerlens Noel currently holds the top spot.
