NBA Draft 2013: Los Angeles Clippers select Reggie Bullock at No. 25

Streeter Lecka

The Los Angeles Clippers got a player to spread the floor, drafting Reggie Bullock from North Carolina.

The Los Angeles Clippers have selected North Carolina forward Reggie Bullock with the No. 25 pick in the 2013 NBA Draft. The 6'7 swingman improved during each of his three seasons with the Tar Heels, and projects as a small forward in the NBA.

The junior was projected to go in the top 20 of the draft by many, so the Clippers finding him at No. 25 is a pretty decent value. He'll be able to fill a role immediately as a shooter at the wing spot.

Bullock blossomed as a three-point shooter over the course of his NCAA career, and that is expected to be calling card at the next level. After shooting 29.6 percent from beyond the arc in his freshman season, Bullock hit 38.2 percent of his threes as a sophomore and 43.6 percent as a junior.

Bullock made strides every year at UNC, and as a junior he posted 13.9 points, 6.5 rebounds and 2.9 assists in 31.4 minutes per game. He is a versatile wing player who can handle the ball, contribute in transition and do the little things to make an impact on both ends of the floor. He's not an amazing physical prospect, which limits his overall upside, but Bullock could easily become a solid rotation player in the NBA.

With a lineup studded with talent — Chris Paul teamed up with Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan in pick-and-rolls, etc. — there's room for a gunner like Bullock to help spread the floor. With Lamar Odom likely out and Matt Barnes not necessarily back, the Clippers' main wing player is Caron Butler. Considering Jamal Crawford comes off the bench as a sixth man, Bullock could end up starting, which is impressive for someone at the 25th pick. If not, there are minutes to be had if he can prove to Doc Rivers he can hit shots like he did at UNC.
