North Carolina freshman Nassir Little is declaring for the 2019 NBA Draft, he announced on Twitter on Monday.

Little's announcement comes on the heels of UNC's crushing loss to Auburn last week in the Sweet Sixteen of the NCAA Tournament. At 6'6" and 220 pounds, Little averaged 9.8 PPG and 4.6 RPG.


Originally from Orange Park, Florida, Little is projected to be a top ten pick in the draft, which takes place on June 20 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

Tar Heels freshman Coby White is also projected to be a top 5 pick if he decides to declare.
