Report: North Carolina’s Tony Bradley declares for the NBA Draft


Tony Bradley proved to be rebounding force for North Carolina this season. Despite being just a freshman, Bradley was a productive player off the bench for another UNC championship team. There is now a good chance he will not be around Chapel Hill much longer, though.

According to a report from’s Evan Daniels, Bradley has declared for the 2017 NBA Draft, but will not sign with an agent. He has filed the proper paperwork. This is not all that unexpected; at the least, it allows Bradley to receive professional feedback. However, if he stays in the draft, Bradley is likely a first round pick, which is a big deal.

Bradley averaged 7.1 points and 5.1 rebounds while shooting 57.3 percent from the field. The freshman appeared in 38 games, and played an average of 14.6 minutes. Bradley pulled down seven rebounds in the championship game against Gonzaga.
