Boys Junior Varsity Basketball, Boys Varsity Basketball · Bartow grad Tony Bradley entering NBA Draft


Tony Bradley helped North Carolina win an NCAA title on Monday.

On Tuesday, the former Bartow star entered the NBA Draft.

Bradley and his family will test the NBA waters, following former McKeel Academy stars Dwayne Bacon (Florida State) and Corey Sanders (Rutgers) into the pre-draft process.

Bartow boys basketball coach Terrence McGriff confirmed Wednesday that the family does not plan to hire an agent, which leaves the door open for Bradley to return to North Carolina for his sophomore season. He has until May 24 to withdraw from the draft pool.

The 6-foot-10 forward averaged 7.1 points and 5.1 rebounds for the Tar Heels this season. He scored five points and grabbed seven rebounds in North Carolina’s win over Gonzaga in the NCAA title game on Monday in Arizona.

Unlike Bradley and Sanders, Bacon does plan on signing with an agent.
