After transferring to NC State, Funderburk averaged 8.8 points, 4.2 rebounds and 1.1 blocks per game — in under 20 minutes per contest — last season. Funderburk was also one of the best offensive rebounders in the ACC: 11.2 percent offensive rebound rate.
This season, he was expected to lead NC State’s frontcourt and team up with Markell Johnson as one of the top pick-and-roll combinations in the country. That, however, is on hold.
According to Joe Giglio of the News & Observer, part of DJ Funderburk’s trouble related to a parking dispute.

His name is not in the court database. One source told me at least part of Funderburk's trouble is related to a parking dispute .. https://t.co/0fmLAAklMu
