Led by Zion and Barrett, 10 ACC Players selected in the 1st Round of the 2019 NBA Draft

It didn’t take long for Zion Williamson to get the night started off, quickly — going No. 1 overall to the New Orleans Pelicans. At the end of the first round, though, Williamson was far from alone in terms of ACC peers entering the NBA. Before the end of the top 10 picks, three more ACC players came off the board, including De’Andre Hunter from the national champs, Virginia.

The coda was Mfiondu Kabengele taken with the 27th overall pick by the Los Angeles Clippers.

Going back to the 2017 NBA Draft, 26 of the last 90 first round picks (29 percent) have hailed from the ACC.
