Reggie Bullock will leave North Carolina, enter 2013 NBA Draft

Grant Halverson

The 6'7 shooter will forego his senior season.

North Carolina Tar Heels forward Reggie Bullock will leave Chapel Hill for the NBA draft, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reported Monday night.

A formal announcement is expected Tuesday, Wojnarowski said.

The 6'7 junior is leaving North Carolina after a season in which he averaged 13.9 points and 6.5 rebounds. Bullock came up large for the Tar Heels late in the season, scoring double figures in eight of his last 10 games before scoring just five points on 1-of-7 shooting in North Carolina's 70-58 loss to the Kansas Jayhawks in the Round of 32 of the NCAA Tournament.

DraftExpress.com is currently projecting Bullock to go No. 30 overall in its 2013 mock draft. He has the right size -- 6'7, 203 pounds -- to be a small forward in the NBA, and he also has the shooting ability. He was 88-of-202 from deep as a junior.

North Carolina coaches tried to convince Bullock to return for his final season of eligibility, Wojnarowski reported.
