Kinston's Reggie Bullock Leaving UNC For NBA Draft

UNC confirms that Kinston native and North Carolina junior forward Reggie Bullock has decided to enter the 2013 NBA draft.

The university made the announcement shortly before noon today.

"It's been a great experience at Carolina and after talking to my family, the coaches and my inner circle of friends, I am ready to take the next step in my career," says Bullock. "I want to play at the next level and will put my name in the NBA Draft this year. I want to thank all of my coaches, teammates and the Carolina fans for their support these past three years. We did some great things that have prepared me to play in the NBA. I know the Tar Heels will have a great year next season."

Bullock was Carolina's third-leading scorer and second-leading rebounder last season. He led the Tar Heels and was third in the A.C.C. in three-point percentage.

"Reggie is such an outstanding young man and a talented basketball player," says UNC head coach Roy Williams. "He was our most consistent player this season, was productive on both ends of the floor and gave us great leadership.
