Tracking the ACC’s Players Signed by NBA Franchises



Pitt Basketball. Blake Hinson

The first player from the ACC picked in this year’s NBA Draft came from Pitt.

Bub Carrington went No. 14 overall to the Washington Wizards, and Duke’s Jared McCain went No. 16 to the Philadelphia 76ers to get the Atlantic Coast Conference’s draft night started. As the draft continued, more five ACC players were picked. All of the ACC players to get drafted are listed here.

Bub Carrington – Pitt

Jared McCain – Duke

Kyshawn George – Miami

Ryan Dunn – Virginia

Kyle Filipowski – Duke

Harrison Ingram – North Carolina

Quinten Post – Boston College

Now, let’s take a look at the ACC products who went undrafted but were picked up shortly after by NBA franchises (so far):


Blake Hinson – Los Angeles Lakers

NC State

DJ Burns – Cleveland Cavaliers

DJ Horne – San Antonio Spurs


PJ Hall – Denver Nuggets


Reece Beekman – Golden State Warriors

Florida State

Darin Green Jr. – San Antonio Spurs

North Carolina

Armando Bacot – Utah Jazz

The ACC’s first Team All-Conference squad included Hinson, Hall, Filipowski, RJ Davis, and Hunter Sallis. Davis and Sallis will be back in the ACC next season, playing for North Carolina and Wake Forest, respectively. Notably, former Syracuse guard Judah Mintz did not get drafted and has not been reported to sign anywhere with an NBA franchise as of Friday morning at 9 a.m.

The ACC’s Second Team All-Conference included Bacot, Beekman, Mintz, Norchad Omier (transferred to Baylor) and Post.

The third team included Horne, Ingram, Jeremy Roach (transferred to Baylor), Markus Burton, and Sean Pedulla (transferred to Ole Miss).

That leaves only RJ Davis (1st Team), Hunter Sallis (1st Team), and Markus Burton (3rd Team) as returning all-league players this year.
