I've been sitting on this discussion for awhile and had meant to make it back when Hairston lost his eligibility at UNC. We need to take this guy. He is going to be a scorer and a straight up dawg every night when he gets to the league.

As a reminder that I should make this thread, Hairston dropped 40 last night in second game in the d-league, lol. Do what it takes to draft him. I said the same thing about Dwight Howard, Chris Paul over Felton and MAYonnaise, and Steph Curry when we were within reasonable distance to do so. Any of those picks could've dramatically changed our franchise's course, but we always made the wrong decision.

Hairston is a dawg - a winner, a fierce competitor, a bad ass dude. All these other guys that have been up for discussion as the top pick are soft ass kids. We need to do what it takes to draft Hairston, that is the bottom line. Trust me.

If he's in the D-League, does he have to be drafted?

And I don't want to put too much stock in two d-league games

In his situation, yes you do. Similar to what happened with Glen Rice Jr. last season. He got kicked out of GT and he decided to play in the d-league but missed being able to declare himself for the draft BEFORE starting the college season. So, in that situation, if they lose their eligibility or are kicked out mid-season, they have to wait to declare for the next draft and play in the d-league for the time being, or they can go overseas. So, yeah they're still considered an amateur to some degree and have to be drafted.

And as I said, this post wasn't concerning his two NBDL games, I intended to make it around the time he was ruled out by UNC. I felt he was a legit prospect following last season. Now, his performance in the NBDL is further proof of that... Roy Williams had said a couple weeks back that Hairston was looking like the best perimeter player he has ever seen in his time at UNC, IIRC.

I question his drive. Of course he's gonna play his hardest in the D-League. He just got kicked from UNC and his draft stock plummeted with everything that went on. He's honestly a douche and a dumbass, and I personally don't think I'd want him on my team.

 

However, I do think that he can be a solid scorer of the bench in the NBA.

If we don't get him, I hope we can land Marcus Paige, James Michael McAdoo or Brice Johnson

I'm a HUGE UNC fan and I wouldn't touch McAdoo... He's too soft

 

Paige and Johnson have a higher upside though.. Think I'd take Brice over Marcus just based on Paige's inconsistency

 

I would not hesitate to take Hairston in the first at all
