UNC's Green Possibly Pulling Out of Draft
According to Jeff Goodman of FOXSports.com, North Carolina junior swingman Danny Green will likely remove his name from the NBA Draft pool next week if his injuries continue to bother him. Green, who has a workout with the Cleveland Cavaliers on Monday, is suffering from a sprained ankle, a hairline fracture of his wrist, an injured elbow, and a hip pointer. "If I’m not feeling good after the Cavs, I’m shut it down and pull out of the draft," Green said. "I’m just trying to go into all the workout with a positive attitude and not make any excuses. But I can’t do some things I want to do and it’s a little frustrating." Green was one of three Tar Heels to declare early for the NBA Draft without signing with an agent. The others, Ty Lawson and Wayne Ellington, have also not made decisions regarding their future. Green averaged 11.5 points and 4.9 rebounds last season in helping lead North Carolina to the Final Four.
