ACC NBA Draft: Which ACC players could be selected in the 2018 Draft?

The 2018 NBA Draft takes place Thursday night (June 21) up in Brooklyn — at the Barclays Center, side of the last two ACC Tournaments. In 2017, the ACC set a record with 10 first round picks — led by Duke’s Jayson Tatum. That’s right: one-third of the first round picks in last year’s event hailed from the ACC — not too shabby. Including second round picks, like Dwayne Bacon of FSU, the ACC had a total of 14 players selected in the 2017 NBA Draft.

The previous record stood at eight first round picks — set by the ACC in 1995 and the SEC in 2012.

It’s unlikely that the ACC will duplicate that insane output again in 2018; however, if the ACC has four or more first round picks this year, it will makes 10 straight years of at least four first round picks (2009-17, currently) for the league.

With multiple players projected to land in the lottery — including Duke’s dynamic duo of Marvin Bagley and Wendell Carter — that seems likely to happen again.

Regardless, let’s look at things team-by-team: underclassmen that have declared for the draft, and seniors that could be selected, too.
