Draft Notes: UNC, Jackson, Enechionyia

Congratulations to the North Carolina Tarheels for winning the National Championship! Coach Roy Williams has now brought home three championships since arriving at Chapel Hill and he’s done so without having a single NBA All-Star come through the program. In tonight’s Community Shootaround, we asked who’s the  best NBA player Williams has ever coached at UNC?

Justin Jackson may earn his way into the conversation once he enters the league, as he’s expected to be a top-10 pick if he decides to declare for the draft. That decision should come over the next few days and as we wait for that news, check out some notes on the upcoming draft:

  • Obi Enechionyia will declare for the draft, but will not hire an agent, Marc Narducci of Philly.com relays. The Temple Owl explains his reason for declaring. “I didn’t see any negative in doing this, and I thought why not,” Enechionyia said. “I know my parents and some old coaches have talked to a few teams and scouts and I know there are some teams that are interested in me.”
  • USC guard Shaqquan Aaron has declared for the NBA Draft, E. Carchia of Sportando relays. Aaron has not hired an agent.
  • Wright State’s Mark Alstork has declared for the draft but has also not hired an agent, according to Jay Morrison of the Dayton Daily News. The guard averaged 19.0 points during his junior season, which led the team.

    Definitely Barnes. Shoutout to Danny Green though, was he fourth best player on the ’09 championship team and has become the best pro of the group (Tyler Hansbrough, Ty Lawson, Wayne Ellington).

    I think top 10 is a little high for Jackson. Has never shown the physicality to get busy in the NBA. Will be very interesting where he goes.

    • Agreed. Granted I haven’t seen many UNC games this year, but I did watch the tournament games and he didn’t really stand out to me. He looks like he can be a solid rotation player, but I honestly didn’t see anything from him that just wowed me.
