Next year has potential to be ridiculous. Just look at the backcourt clutter, it makes me shine with happiness.
Marcus Paige, Nate Britt, Joel Berry, Stillman White coming back, Dante Exum and Rashad Vaughn as legitimate possibilities to commit as well. And then in all honesty, PJ could probably use his senior year as redemption to help his stock climb up a bit more after this disaster of a year for him.
Granted, I'm sure PJ would be manning the 3 with a backcourt like that, but I digress.
If JMM stayed and PJ stayed... Duke vs UNC could be extremely fun next year, and we could be looking at #1 and #2 ranked teams.
Joel Berry/Nate Britt at the 1
Marcus Paige/PJ at the 2
PJ/Theo Pinson/Justin Jackson at the 3
JMM/Isaiah Hicks/Brice Johnson at the 4
Kennedy Meeks/Joel James at the 5
A man can dream. That would be one dirty team right there, even without Exum or Vaughn.
On Stillman, is he coming back? I was under the impression Roy basically gave him a scholarship for the year, and after his mission they would be parting ways.
Exum will be in the NBA, not in college. He COULD play this season, but more than likely won't.
Vaughn would be a big get, but I haven't seen too many Carolina people confident on him.
Regardless of those 3, Carolina does have some great potential next season. I seriously doubt PJ comes back, but if he did, they would be a Top 3 team without question.
