On3 Names Bub Carrington as Top Five NBA Prospect in ACC



Will we see a Pitt Panther drafted in the 2024 NBA Draft?

It may be too early to tell, but those who cover the NBA Draft have already had some predictions about several Panthers early this season.


On3’s national basketball reporter Jamie Shaw wrote an article on Monday breaking down the ACC’s Top Five NBA Draft prospects. In the article, he named Pitt freshman guard Bub Carrington as the No. 5 NBA Draft prospect in the league.

In addition, he had Pitt forwards Blake Hinson and Guillermo Diaz-Graham among his “Other Players to Watch” category in the article.

So far through four games, Carrington is averaging 18 points, 5.5 rebounds, and 6.3 assists per game at the point guard spot for the Panthers. Hinson is once again leading the team in scoring, averaging 20.5 points per game on 46% from the field and 39% from three-point range. Diaz-Graham is currently Pitt’s backup five man behind Federiko Federiko, and is averaging 10.5 points and 5.8 rebounds per game. Diaz-Graham set career-highs in both points and rebounds in Pitt’s win over Jacksonville, logging his first career double-double with 23 points and ten rebounds.

There are 58-60 draft slots depending on how many forfeits for tampering etc: Roughly 45 will go to college players maybe a few less. Being a “player to watch” or roughly one of 40 in one of six power conferences is hardly cause for popping champagne corks. Now Carrington on the other hand looks like a pretty legit prospect. But it’s early
