In a discussion with the Boston Globe, an NBA scout revealed that he isn't very impressed by national championship North Carolina's three stars.
The scout believes that point guard Ty Lawson would go in the late teens, forward Tyler Hansbrough would be a late first-rounder at best, and guard Wayne Ellington would be a second-rounder.
"Ty has grown on me," the scout told the Globe. "I wasn't a big fan when he initially came out last year. It was a good decision to go back to school. He's the best prospect. But at the end of the day, the three [underclassman] big boys - Deon Thompson, Ed Davis, and Tyler Zeller - may be better as pros than Lawson, Hansbrough, and Ellington. With Hansbrough, energy and effort only get you so far in our league. You can count on one hand how many guys get by on that. I'm not a fan. You've got to respect the numbers he put up. Unbelievable college career. But all that stuff doesn't translate over. He's not explosive; undersized, short arms, and limited offensively. He's an OK athlete."
