Up to five UNC players may be taken in first round

Tonight's NBA Draft will have a light blue tint, compliments of North Carolina's NCAA Tournament championship team. Several draft analysts have said that as many as five members of the team could be first-round selections. Marvin Williams is likely to be the first UNC player drafted, and could be the first Tar Heels player taken with the No. 1 pick since Brad Daugherty in 1986. Raymond Felton, Sean May and Rashad McCants of UNC are also expected to be taken in the first round, and Jawad Williams might be a late pick in the first round. (Winston-Salem Journal)
