Between the Banners: Did Carolina win or lose the 2019 NBA Draft?

This is a mixed bag, or sorts.

Following up on the kneejerk reactions from the 2019 NBA Draft last week, host Chad Floyd (@Chad_Floyd) and guest Joe Carpenter (@joecarpenteriv) came back to revisit last week’s festivities.

The biggest talking point coming out of the draft was Nassir Little’s fall, but is that outweighed by the success of Coby White and Cam Johnson?

For those who have been living under a rock, Coby White went 7th overall to the Chicago Bulls, Cam Johnson exceeded any rational expectation at 11th to the Phoenix Suns, and Nassir Little came in well behind any reasonable expectation, dropping to Portland at 25.

  • Joe drops some nice historical nuggets and comparisons to Roy Williams’ results;
  • Talk of how Coby’s emergence has already paid dividends with Cole Anthony;
  • Cam Johnson has a brother with a North Carolina offer, that doesn’t hurt.
